Governor is a device used to maintain the speed of an engine within specified limits when the engine works in varying of different loads. Based on the source of controlling ..
When several forces of different magnitude and different direction act upon a certain body, they constitute a system of forces. If all the forces in a system lie in a single ..
According to Varignon’s theorem, the algebraic sum of several concurrent forces about any point is equal to the moments of the moments of their resultant about ..
For establishing the relationship between measurable and actual forces Merchant’s circle diagram will be used. Merchant circle diagram is used to analyze the forces ..
Pressure (symbol: p or P) is a measure of force distribution over any surface associated with the force. Pressure is a surface phenomenon and it can be physically ..
A force exerted on a body can cause a change in either the shape or the motion of the body. The unit of force in SI system is the newton (N) and CGS system is dyne. ..
Different types of loads in engineering mechanics are compression, tension, torsion and bending. Compression: Compression loading is an effect in which the component ..
The moment produced by two equal, opposite and noncollinear forces is called couple. Couples have certain unique properties and important applications in mechanics. ..
The problems of mechanics can be solved by Newton’s laws of motion. The three laws proposed by Sir Isaac Newton, described as follows. Newton’s First ..
