Homework Help: Static Equilibrium Velocity

  1. May 8, 2013 #1
    1. What occurs during static equilibrium?

    3. The net force and net torque on the object is zero. The acceleration of the object is zero too. Would velocity of the object also be zero? Or no because it has constant velocity?

    Consider what Newton's first law states. A body at rest stays at rest or...?

    Another way to consider it, is if the velocity is equal to zero or a constant, will there be a change in velocity and hence an acceleration?
