## Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics Varingon’s theorem of moment’s states

Algebraic sum of the moments of two forces about any point, is equal to the moment of their resultant about that point
Algebraic sum of the moments of the forces about any point in their plane, is equal to the moment of their resultant about that point
Arithmetical sum of the moments of two forces about any point, is equal to the moments of their resultant about that point
Arithmetical sum of the moments of the forces about any point in their plane, is equal to the moment of their resultant about that point

## Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics A system of coplanar forces is in equilibrium when

Both force polygon" and funicular polygon close
All the forces are concurrent
Force polygon closes
Funicular polygon closes

## Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics On a mass ‘m’ describing a circular path of radius ‘r’, the centrifugal force

Is mw2r/g kgf
Acts tangentially to the circular path
Acts towards the centre of rotation
Acts away from the centre of rotation

## Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics The following is not a law of static friction:

The force of friction always acts in a direction opposite to that in which the body tends to move
The force of friction depends upon the roughness of the surface
The magnitude of the limiting friction bears a constant ratio to the normal reaction between two surfaces
The force of friction is dependent upon the area of contact
