Shawn Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. Assistant Professor Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Memorial University of Newfoundland spkenny@engr.mun.ca ENGI 1313 Mechanics I Lecture 11:2D and 3D Particle Equilibrium

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 2 Chapter 3 Objectives to introduce the concept of the free-body diagram for a particle. to show how to solve particle equilibrium problems using the equations of equilibrium

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 3 Lecture 11 Objectives to further examine and apply Chapter 3 objectives in 2D and 3D space

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 4 Note on Free Body Diagram Force Sense and Solution  Negative sign indicates the force sense is opposite that shown on the FBD F 1 = mg F2F2 F2F2

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 12 Example 11-01 (cont.) Cord Forces  Analysis summary unit force  Maximum force 200 N

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 13 Example 11-01 (cont.) Use of Vector Algebra in Mathematical Software to Solve Mechanics Problems  Mathcad www.mathcad.com  Engineering calculations This discussion on the use of Mathcad is just for knowledge It is not part of any course requirement

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 14 Example 11-01 (cont.) Mathcad Solution  Set-up equilibrium equations

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 15 Example 11-01 (cont.) Mathcad Solution  Uses a command Find to solves a system of linear equations  This system of linear equations is based on the FBD analysis that defines the equilibrium equations (  F x and  F y )  The Find command function requires an initial guess or estimate of the forces and angle (  ) to start the mathematical search of the solution

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 16 Example 11-01 (cont.) Mathcad Solution  Solve system of equations

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 17 Particle Equilibrium in 3D 3 Equations  Solve for at most 3 unknowns  Scalar components = 0 Cartesian Vector Newton’s 1 st Law

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 18 Comprehension Quiz 11-01 In 3-D, the direction of a force is known but not the force magnitude, how many unknowns corresponding to that force remain?  A) One  B) Two  C) Three  D) Four Answer: A

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 19 Comprehension Quiz 11-02 In 3-D, when you don’t know either the direction or magnitude of a force, how many unknowns do you have corresponding to that force?  A) One  B) Two  C) Three  D) Four Answer: C

ENGI 1313 Statics I – Lecture 11© 2007 S. Kenny, Ph.D., P.Eng. 20 Comprehension Quiz 11-03 Four forces act at point A and the system is in equilibrium. Select the correct force vector F 4 to balance the system. Answer: D z x A y F 3 = 10 N F 1 = 20 N F 2 = 10 N
