Block 2 Statics

Unit 3 Forced and moments - this unit introduces the ideas of forces, moments and strength, and employs these quantities in static analysis – the analysis of forces and moments on stationary bodies. The unit also teaches about Newton’s laws of motion and, in particular, the application of Newton’s first law to statics problems.

Unit 4 Modelling with free-body diagrams - this unit is devoted to explaining how to select free bodies in static analysis and how to draw the related free-body diagrams. A procedure for using free-body diagrams to solve statics problems is set out.
