CHAPTER NO. 7
D’Alembert’s Principle
Q.1 What do you understand by Dynamic Equilibrium?
Ans: 1) A body move with certain acceleration due to the effect of applied force according to
the Newton’s second law. So this body cannot be in equilibrium because of the resultant
applied force. Then the equations of static equilibrium are not applicable here.
2) If now an imaginary force F = ma is applied to the body opposite to the direction of
acceleration ‘a’, then the body is said to be in dynamic equilibrium. Then all equations of
static equilibrium are applicable to dynamic equilibrium.
Q.2 State and explain D’Alembert’s Principle of dynamic equilibrium.
Ans: 1) Due to application of force or force system, a body has a motion of translation and it is
not in equilibrium.
2) D’Alembert’s suggested to write Newton’s second law Σ F = ma in the form
Σ F – ma = 0
This is the equation of the dynamic equilibrium.
Where,
Σ F = resultant of external forces and
(-ma) = D’Alembert’s inertia force.
D’Alembert’s Principle Page 2
Therefore, the motion of acceleration is brought to dynamic equilibrium by adding
reversed effective force (-ma) on the body.
Statement:
D’Alembert’s Principle states that, “the impressed forces acting on the body are in
dynamic equilibrium with inertia forces of the body under motion”.
3) In short, D’Alembert’s Principle states that, the resultant of external force Σ F and the
inertia force (-ma) is always zero. This is the condition of dynamic equilibrium.

D alemberts principle

  • 1. D’Alembert’s Principle Page 1 CHAPTER NO. 7 D’Alembert’s Principle Q.1 What do you understand by Dynamic Equilibrium? Ans: 1) A body move with certain acceleration due to the effect of applied force according to the Newton’s second law. So this body cannot be in equilibrium because of the resultant applied force. Then the equations of static equilibrium are not applicable here. 2) If now an imaginary force F = ma is applied to the body opposite to the direction of acceleration ‘a’, then the body is said to be in dynamic equilibrium. Then all equations of static equilibrium are applicable to dynamic equilibrium. Q.2 State and explain D’Alembert’s Principle of dynamic equilibrium. Ans: 1) Due to application of force or force system, a body has a motion of translation and it is not in equilibrium. 2) D’Alembert’s suggested to write Newton’s second law Σ F = ma in the form Σ F – ma = 0 This is the equation of the dynamic equilibrium. Where, Σ F = resultant of external forces and (-ma) = D’Alembert’s inertia force.
  • 2. D’Alembert’s Principle Page 2 Therefore, the motion of acceleration is brought to dynamic equilibrium by adding reversed effective force (-ma) on the body. Statement: D’Alembert’s Principle states that, “the impressed forces acting on the body are in dynamic equilibrium with inertia forces of the body under motion”. 3) In short, D’Alembert’s Principle states that, the resultant of external force Σ F and the inertia force (-ma) is always zero. This is the condition of dynamic equilibrium. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Type I) Analysis of the motion of two bodies connected by a string: (egs. on Pulley) Q1) Two weights W1 and W2 are connected by a light and inextensible string, passing over a smooth pulley. If W1 > W2. Prove that the acceleration ‘a’ of the system and tension in string are given by, a = g (W1− W2) W1+ W2 and T = 2W1 W2 W1+ W2 Q2) Two bodies of weight 50 N and 30 N are connected to the two ends of light inextensible string. The string is passing over a smooth pulley. Determine: a) The acceleration of the system and b) Tension in the string (g = 9.81 m/s2 ) Q3) Two bodies of weight 300 N and 450 N are connected to two ends of light inextensible string. The string is passing over a smooth pulley. Determine: (Assignment Problem) a) The acceleration of the system and b) Tension in the string (g = 9.81 m/s2 ) Q4) Two bodies of different weights are connected to two ends of light inextensible string. The string is passing over a smooth pulley. If the acceleration of the system is 3 m/s2 and bigger weight is 60N, determine: (Assignment Problem) a) The smaller weight and b) Tension in the string (g = 9.81 m/s2 ) Q5) Determine the tension in the string and acceleration of blocks A and B weighing 1500 N and 500 N connected by an inextensible string as shown in Figure (a) below. Assume pulleys as frictionless and weightless.

Type II) Motion on an inclined smooth surface: Q1) A body of weight 200 N is initially stationary on a 450 inclined plane. What distance along plane must the body slide, before it reaches a speed of 2 m/s (𝜇 = 0.1) Q2) A motorist travelling at a speed of 70 kmph suddenly applies brakes and halts after skidding 50 m. Determine: a) The time required to stop the car and b) The co-efficient of friction between the tyres and the roads. (Dec 2005) (10 Mks) Q3) Two rough planes inclined at 300 and 600 to horizontal are placed back to back as shown in Fig below. The blocks of weights 50 N and 100 N are placed on the faces and are connected by a string running parallel to planes and passing over a frictionless pulley. If μ = 1 3 , find the resulting acceleration and tension in the string. Figure (a) Q4) Two weights 800 N and 200 N are connected by a thread and they move along a rough horizontal plane under the action of a force 400 N applied to the 800 N weight as shown in Fig. below. μ = 0.3. Using D’Alembert’s Principle determine the acceleration of the weight and tension in the thread.
  • 5. D’Alembert’s Principle Page 5 Q5) A body weighing 1200 N rests on a rough plane inclined at 120 to the horizontal. It is pulled up the plane by means of a light flexible rope running parallel to the plane and passing over a light frictionless pulley at the top of the plane as shown in Figure in Figure below. The portion of the rope beyond the pulley hangs verticlley down and carries a weight of 800 N at its end. μ = 0.2. Determine: A) Tension in the rope B) Acceleration with which the body moves up the plane and C) The distance moved by the body in 3 sec after starting from rest. Q6) Two bodies of weights 40 N and 15 N are connected to the two ends of a light inextensible string which passes over a smooth pulley.
