Lecture Outline Free body diagram. Equilibrium of a particle - two dimensional problems.

A Particle Large bodies or small bodies can be referred to as particles when the size and shape of the body have no effect on the response of the body to a system of forces. The mass of the body can be assumed to be concentrated at a point and the shape can be neglected. A necessary and sufficient condition for equilibrium: R=SF=0 Where SF is the sum of all forces acting on a particle.

Free Body Diagram A carefully prepared drawing that shows a “body of interest” separated from all interacting bodies. The forces exerted by all other bodies must be determined and shown on the diagram. Fcd mg

The procedure for drawing free-body diagram Essential Steps
Make a decision regarding what body is to be isolated and analyzed. Prepare a sketch of the external boundary of the selected body. Present all forces, known and unknown, that are applied by other bodies with vectors in the correct position.

What should be the body of “interest” of the following problem?
or Fcd Fac Fb mg Fcd

How to deal with unknown forces?
If a force has a known line of action but unknown magnitude and direction, the direction of the force can be assumed. If both magnitude and direction of the force are unknown it might be convenient to show the two rectangular components of the force. N2 N1 mg

Procedure to construct a complete and correct free-body diagram:
1) Decide which body or combination of bodies is to be shown on the free-body diagram. 2) Prepare a drawing of the outline of the free-body. 3) Carefully trace around the boundary of the free body and identify all the forces exerted by contacting or attracting bodies that were removed during the isolation process. 4) Choose the set of coordinate axes to be used in solving the problem and indicate their direction on the free-body diagram.

Equilibrium of a Particle – Two Dimensions
R= Rx + Ry = Rn + Rt = Rxi+ Ryj= Rnen+ Rtet =SFxi+ SFyj= SFnen+ SFtet =0 The equation can only be satisfied if: Rx = Rxi=SFxi=0 Ry = Ryj=SFyj=0 Rn = Rnen=SFnen=0 Rt = Rtet=SFtet=0 or

Example – P3-4 A homogeneous cylinder with mass of 250 kg is supported against a smooth surface by a cable as shown in Fig Determine the forces exerted on the cylinder by the cable and by the smooth surface at contact point C.
