Question 7: Write the solution steps of a numerical problem of the equilibrium.
Answer
The following procedural steps may be taken while solving a numerical problem of equilibrium.
 Study the problem very carefully and identify all the forces acting on the body.
 Draw a clear diagram and show all forces acting on the body.
 Mark all the forces as,, ….. etc.
 Find all angles θ_{1}, θ_{2}, θ_{3} … etc.
 Resolve all forces into their respective x and ycomponents.
 Add all x and ycomponents of the identified forces, ∑Fx and ∑Fy .
 Apply the conditions for equilibrium,

 ∑F_{x} = 0
 ∑F_{y}= 0
 ∑τ = 0
 Solve the above equations for the required unknown quantities.
