Static Equilibrium

An object is in static equilibrium (it is not moving) IF 1) it is not translating (not moving up, down, left, or right) AND 2) it is not rotating (not spinning CW or CCW) (We are talking about motion in a 2D plane here.) If a stationary mass is acted on by several forces F1 , F2 , F3 ,.. , then in order to NOT translate, the net force must be zero.

Fnet = Ftotal =

= F1 + F2 + F3 + = 0

=0,

=0

Even though the net force is zero, the object might not be in static equilibrium. Here is a case (two forces acting on a bar) where the force is zero, but the forces cause the object to spin: In order to guarantee static equilibrium, we must have 1) net force = 0 AND 2) net torque = 0 Remember what torque: torque (pronounced "tork") is a kind of "rotational force". magnitude of torque:

net

r F

Unit of torque = [ ] = [ r ][ F] = m N

r = "lever arm" = distance from axis of rotation to point of application of force F = component of force perpendicular to lever arm vector Example: Wheel on a fixed axis: Notice that only the perpendicular component of the force will rotate the wheel. The component of the force parallel to the lever arm (F||) has no effect on the rotation of the wheel. F = F sin F F||

SE-2 If you want to easily rotate an object about an axis, you want a large lever arm r and a large perpendicular force F: bad axis no good! (F = 0) better best

no good! (r = 0)

Example: Pull on a door handle a distance r = 0.8 m from the hinge with a force of magnitude F = 20 N at an angle = 30o from the plane of the door, like so: F hinge r = r F = r F sin = (0.8 m)(20 N)(sin 30o) = 8.0 mN Torque has a sign (+ or ) : Positive torque causes counter-clockwise CCW rotation. Negative torque causes clockwise (CW) rotation. F

An object is in rotational equilibrium only when the net torque about any axis is zero (when the negative torques cancel the positive torques). Later on, we will prove this.

= 0

Example: Use of torque in static equilibrium. A uniform plank of mass mp and length L is balanced on a pivot as shown with two masses m1 and m2 at the ends. Knowns: mp, m2, d, L Unknown: m1 = ? m2 mp L/2 = (3/2) d 2d L=3d c.m. = "center of mass" or "center of gravity" of the plank is located at the middle of the plank (since it is a uniform plank). As far as torques are concerned, the plank acts as if all its mass were concentrated at the center of mass. c.m. d/2 d m1

Notice that since the g's cancel, this plank will balance on the moon too.

Example: Static equilibrium problem with Fnet = 0 , but no torque. A mass m hanging from two strings like so: Knowns: m, , Unknowns: string tensions T1 = ?, T2 = ? T1 T2 knot m Forces on knot: Notice that lengths of force arrows in diagram below have nothing to do with the lengths of the strings in diagram above. T2 knot mg x m mg y T3

T1

Because the forces on the mass m must cancel, the tension in the bottom string = T3 = mg.

SE-4 The knot is a point object; there are no lever arms here, so no possibility of rotation. We don't have to worry about torques: Apply equations of static equilibrium to the knot:

F F

=0

T1 sin + T2 sin = 0 OR

=0

Now have 2 equations in 2 unknowns (T1 and T2), so we can solve. (I'll let you do that!)

Harder Example: Static equilibrium problem with Fnet = 0 and A store sign with mass ms is hung from a uniform bar of mass mb and length L. The sign suspended from a point of the way from the The bar is held up with a cable at an angle as shown. What is the tension T in the cable? Knowns: mb , ms , L, Unknown: tension T = ? pivot

Another question: The wall is exerting some force FW on the left end of the bar. What are the components Fwx and Fwy of this force?

SE-5 All forces on bar: Fwy Fwx mBg mSg L/4 L/2 Method I: Assume we know tension T (from previous problem). Then can use T Can choose this point as pivot (axis) to compute the torques!

=0,

=0

Fwx = T cos ,

Method II: Assume that we do not know tension T. Torque is always computed with respect to some axis or pivot point. If the object is not moving at all, we can pick any point as the axis. We can always pretend that the object is about to rotate about that point. We can choose the right end of the bar as our pivot point. Then the tension force does not produce any torque (since the lever arm is zero). The torque equation becomes

(Can still get Fwx using method I above.) What is the magnitude of the total force on the bar from the wall?

Fw =
