Forces in Equilibrium on Particles
Below is a list of methods for describing forces in equilibrium acting on a particle. Theforces act in
one
plane and are called
coplanar
.In this context the word
equilibrium
means that the forces are in balance and there is nonet force acting.Vector MethodThe condition for equilibrium is that the vector sum of forces(the resultant)is the
nullvector
. This means that the multipliers for the
i
,
 j
and
k
unit vectors are each zero.Example #1A particle at rest has forces (2
i
+ 3
 j
), (
m
i
+ 6
 j
) and (-4
i
+
n
 j
) acting on it.What are the values of 
m
and
n
?For equilibrium, all the forces when added together(the vector sum) equal zero.The scalar multipliers of each unit vector equal zero.Ans.
m
= 2 and
n
= -9
