In this chapter, we analyze our first static bodies (motion where acceleration = 0), treating them as particles. The sections in this chapter include:
- 2.1 Particle & Rigid Body – the difference between particles and rigid bodies
- 2.2 Free Body Diagrams for Particles – learning how to model forces and motion
- 2.3 Equilibrium Equations for Particles – analyzing static bodies
- 2.4. Examples – problems submitted by other students.
Very simply, here are the important equations for this section (the Ch 1 equations might be helpful too)
