State the conditions of equilibrium for a rigid body.
Conditions of equilibrium for a rigid body:
1. The body should have a broad base.
2. Center of gravity of the body should be as low as possible.
3. Vertical line drawn from the center of gravity should fall within the base of
4. Vector sum of forces acting on the body should be zero.
5. Algebraic sum of moments acting on the body should be zero.
