What is Mechanics?


“Branch of Science deals with the
effects of forces on objects which
are at rest or motion.”

What is statics? .2.

Statics “Branch of Mechanics deals with the particle or body at rest”. .

3. What is Dynamics? .

Dynamics “Branch of Mechanics deals with the particle or body at motion”. .

What is a rigid body and deformable body? .4.

.Rigid Body “A body does not deform under the action of forces”. Deformable Body “A body does deform under the action of forces”.

What is Force? .5.

Force “External Agency which changes or tends to change the state of the body”. .

6. What is the unit of Force in SI system? .

(m/s2) .Unit of Force in SI system Unit of Force : Newton (N) Basic Unit : Kg.

What is the unit of mass? .7.

• Mass never changes from place to place.Mass • Quantity of matter possessed by a body or particle. Unit of Mass : Kg . • Mass is a scalar quantity.

8. What is the unit of Weight? .

(m/s2) . Unit of Weight : Newton (N) Basic Unit : Kg. • Weight is a Vector quantity. • Weight changes according to gravitational acceleration (changes from place to place).Weight • Force exerted by the earth on the particle or body.

What is Equilibrium of a body? .9.

” “If the body is in equilibrium.Equilibrium of a body “ A Body is said to be in equilibrium. when the resultant of forces acting on the body is zero. it will continue to remain in state of rest or in of uniform motion” .

What is Equilibrant force? .10.

Equilibrant Force “ A force with keep the body under equilibrium” “Equilibrant Force is equivalent to the resultant force but in opposite direction” .

What is Concurrent force system? .11.

” Example: .Concurrent Force System “ Line of action of all the forces pass through a common point of intersection is called concurrent force system.

State the equilibrium conditions. .12.

.e. (iii) Sum FY  0of Vertical forces equal to zero i. . (ii) Sum of Horizontal forces equal FX to  0 zero i..e.. R = 0 i.e.Equilibrium Conditions (i) Resultant Force.

13. State Lami’s Theorem .

then each force is proportional to the sine of the included angle between the other 2 forces.Lami’s Theorem “In a concurrent system.” . If 3 forces are acting on a particle are in equilibrium.

What is Free Body Diagram? .14.

” .Free Body Diagram “Diagram of a separated body showing all the external forces acting on the body and their reactions .
