4 Many-Particle Interactions 1 2 f 21 f 13 3 f 12 f 31 f 23 f 32 F3F3 F1F1 F2F2 Summation of the above equation gives Newton’s 3 rd law Therefore: For an N particles system, in equilibrium Newton’s 1st law

5 Free-Body-Diagram Isolate the body in question with the representation of all external forces acting on it.

6 Problem 1

7 Remove Spike from Timber It is desired to remove the spike from the timber by applying force along its horizontal axis. An obstruction A prevents direct access, so that two forces, one is 1.6kN and the other P, are applied by cables as shown. Compute the magnitude of P necessary to ensure axial tension T along the spike. Also find T.
