Reaction forces in ball and socket joints

  1. Oct 2, 2006 #1

    I was just wondering in what directions the reaction forces go in ball and socket joints? Are there reactions in the x, y, and z plane or just in 2 of those planes.

    All 3.

    Edit: x,y, and z plane is meaningless. You should have said the xy plane, yz plane, and xz plane. (unless you mean x,y,z are the normals to the plane).
