From Newtons 1st law, an object is in equilibrium when it moves at constant velocity (Mathew, 2010, pp5). Static equilibrium is thus a system at rest is said to be in static equilibrium. The summation of equilibrium forces in each direction adds to zero. Also, the total net summation of torque is equates to zero. (Mathew, 2004, p.3).ԐFx=0, ԐFy=0, ԐFz=0, ԐԎ=0,Fx becomes the force that occur in the X direction and Fy are the forces that occur in the Y component direction (Mathew,2010.pp.7). Fz is the force acting towards the Z direction. Force in an action as either a push or a pull that acts on an object. It has units given Newton. (N). Torque can be defined as the product as force and distance (r) about a point that causes the object to rotate. This is formal equation for torque is Ԏ=Frsinϴ (Mathew, 2014, pp.4).F is the force in Newtons (N), r is the distance from the reference at which that the force acts at from the force vector at an angle from the distance. Torque= (Force) (Momentum arm), by convention a torque creating a clockwise rotation becomes negative torque, and a torque causing a counterclockwise rotation gives positive torque
In this experiment, the force acting on a ring on a force table will be broken into constituents. The force, both magnitude and direction it will necessary to balance the ring. Equipment’s such as Force Table, Set of Hanging, Masses set of weights, three mass hangers, Ruler, Torque Balance Stand, string, two balances (Eisenberg, 2009 p.56)
The mass for the 50gram disk was calculated. Also, mass of one of the hangers was measure. The mass of the disk was increased to the mass of the hanger, and its sum tabulated. This process was done again for second 50 gram disk and mass hanger. The sum was taken as M2 the components of for both X and Y of the force vectors given that m1 positioned at an angle of 40 degrees, and m2 is at 120 degree. In order to obtain the magnitude direction, a third force is necessary to balance

Most of the tasks will have difficulties in being accomplished especially they require the involvement of forces and movement. This is where mechanical systems come in handy as a means of expedient work to be done efficiently and easily.
The difference, (P0-P) varies with the square of the fluid velocity and density, , of the moving fluid. The relationship is P0-P =1/2 air v 2
Since the Pitot-static tube cannot measure the local velocity at a point because P0 and P are not measured in the same places, it the experiment has used a smaller pitot-static tube to reduce the error.
This is not as expected. The faulty results may have arisen due to positioning of the carriage that resulted in directional positioning errors, errors due to taking readings, and finally tensional errors. Also, this could be due to the meter stick
This is presented by the demonstrations chosen some loaded beams. Moment of force therefore is that force that is due to the revolving effect ,for example when a force is subjected to one end of an body whose other end is attached to a
The objectives for carrying out the static equilibrium experiment are: 1. To examine the static equilibrium of a system of forces of different magnitudes acting at different angles. 2. To compare the experimental results with those obtained by computing the resultant force. 3. To compare the experimental result and the calculated result with those obtained by the graphical method.
The study was a success. Algebraically was found to be 0.252N at an angle of 56.3 degrees. The theoretical value of is zero.
Physical quantities can either be vectors or scalar. Scalar quantities are represented by only their magnitude while both
Examples of 1Degree of Freedom are those which are in system dynamics or vibration courses. The systems in this lab represent examples of the simplest dynamical systems which might be encountered in engineering
