Statics is the branch of mechanics concerned with the analysis of loads (force, torque/moment) on physical systems in static equilibrium, that is, in a state where the relative positions of subsystems do not vary over time, or where components and structures are at a constant velocity. When in static equilibrium, the system is either at rest, or its center of mass moves at constant velocity. The study of moving bodies is known as dynamics, and in fact the entire field of statics is a special case of dynamics.
By Newton's first law, this situation implies that the net force and net torque (also known as moment of force) on every body in the system is zero. From this constraint, such quantities as stress or pressure can be derived. The net forces equalling zero is known as the first condition for equilibrium, and the net torque equalling zero is known as the second condition for equilibrium. See statically determinate.
I wanted a bachelors in computer science, untill I saw the three semesters of calc and two of calc based physics...
I finished my Bachelor's in 2007
This is all Grad school ****
The late Randy Pausch of Carnegie Mellon once said "The barriers are there to keep the other people out", implying that the truly strong and determined break through the barriers. But whenever I see any challenge or barrier, I run away. **** that. Especially mathematical challenges like above. After seeing that I just run away.
