Concept of Equilibrium of Rigid Body

INTRODUCTION

 Suppose a rigid body is acted upon by several external forces. Due to this if the body remains at rest or continues to move without rotation in a constant velocity (acceleration is zero), the resultant of the forces should be zero and as the body does not rotate with angular acceleration, the sum total of, the moment about any point of the external forces will also be zero. Mathematically,
