a)the net force in all directions must be zero

b)the net torque must be zero

c) the object's velocity must be zero

d) a and b are correct

e) all of the above

2. I know that the net force in all directions must be equal to zero, also teh sum of the net torque must be equal to zero. I am confusted about the object's velocity being zero.

3. An object can have non-zero velocity and not be accelerating(ie it has a constant velocity), which would fulfill the idea that no net force is acting upon it. However in my class text, it keeps stating that the object is at rest. I'm not sure if this is just a specific example of equilibrium, or if all objects in equilibrium must be at rest (ie velocity= 0). From the searches that I have done I can't tell if the object's velocity must be zero...any explanations?

3.attempt at solution, because I think you can have constant velocity in which you are not accelerating, I believe the answer is D, both choice A and B are correct.
