    Moments Question.

    you can only let forces up let forces down, when what is equal?

    I don't get your question. Go to bed. Get up earlier than usual. Goodnight

    PS this isn't to do with moments but you might be wanting the answer: When forces are balanced, an object travels at a constant velocity ( acceleration = 0 )

    ah i know, but this is something i need to clear up.
    So for moments, forces up Ie. Resultants dont always equal the forces down. ie.
    R1 + R2 can't eqaul (sum of forces down) 60g.

    But why is this the case again?

    assuming the system is in equilibrium

    all forces should resolve horizontally and vertically to 0, as should anticlockwise and clockwise moments.

    Where...
    s = the distance between initial and final positions (displacement) (sometimes denoted R or x)
    u = the initial velocity (speed in a given direction)
    v = the final velocity
    a = the constant acceleration
    t = the time taken to move from the initial state to the final state

    If the system is in equilibrium, then all the forces must be balanced.

    So as long as the system is stationary (acceleration = 0), vertical forces or components up, will equal vertical components down.

    and clockwise and anticlockwise moments will = 0.

    thanks.. I know these off by heart..
