Free Body Diagrams
A scalar is simply a number, a magnitude alone.
A force is usually shown as a vector, which includes both
magnitude and a direction.
Force (or free-body) diagrams show the relative magnitude
and direction of all forces acting upon an object. The object
must be isolated and “free” of its surroundings.
This is a free-body diagram of the Statue
of Liberty. She is represented by a simple
box. The forces acting on her are labeled
with a magnitude and the arrow shows
direction. Notice the surrounding objects
are stripped away and the forces acting on
the object are shown.
496210 lb
496210 lb
WW here represents the force of the weight
of the statue.
NN is the normal force, which represents
the force Liberty Island is pushing back
up on the statue.
The island has a great resistance to
compression. The ground is exerting a
force upward on the statue perpendicular,
or normal, to the surface.

W =
Think of the diagram on an XY
plane.
If “up” is assumed to be the positive
direction, then N is positive and W is
negative.

(Positive x-direction)
The first line of this calculation reads,
“The sum of the ForcesThe sum of the Forces inin thethe positive y directionpositive y direction is
WW + NN” ( Σ is the Greek symbol for “sum” )
++↑↑ ΣΣFFyy = WW + NN
ΣFy = (-496210 lb-496210 lb) + (+496210 lb+496210 lb )
ΣFy = 0

W =W =
(Positive y-direction)
+y
+x
(Positive x-direction)
The sum of the forces in the y is zero.
The forces acting on the object cancel each other out.
•We know F = m * aa, where “a” is acceleration.
•If aa = 00, then F = m * 00 = 00.
•When Σ F = 0, the object is not accelerating.
•We we can then say that the forces acting on the
object cancel each other out and it is in a state of
static equilibrium.

Free body diagrams

  • 2. A scalar is simply a number, a magnitude alone. A force is usually shown as a vector, which includes both magnitude and a direction. Force (or free-body) diagrams show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object. The object must be isolated and “free” of its surroundings.
  • 3. This is a free-body diagram of the Statue of Liberty. She is represented by a simple box. The forces acting on her are labeled with a magnitude and the arrow shows direction. Notice the surrounding objects are stripped away and the forces acting on the object are shown. 496210 lb 496210 lb
  • 4. WW here represents the force of the weight of the statue. NN is the normal force, which represents the force Liberty Island is pushing back up on the statue. The island has a great resistance to compression. The ground is exerting a force upward on the statue perpendicular, or normal, to the surface. 496210 lb 496210 lbN = W =
  • 5. Think of the diagram on an XY plane. If “up” is assumed to be the positive direction, then N is positive and W is negative. 496210 lb496210 lb 496210 lb496210 lbN =N = W =W = (Positive y-direction) +y +x (Positive x-direction)
  • 6. The first line of this calculation reads, “The sum of the ForcesThe sum of the Forces inin thethe positive y directionpositive y direction is WW + NN” ( Σ is the Greek symbol for “sum” ) ++↑↑ ΣΣFFyy = WW + NN ΣFy = (-496210 lb-496210 lb) + (+496210 lb+496210 lb ) ΣFy = 0 496210 lb496210 lb 496210 lb496210 lbN =N = W =W = (Positive y-direction) +y +x (Positive x-direction) The sum of the forces in the y is zero. The forces acting on the object cancel each other out.
  • 7. •We know F = m * aa, where “a” is acceleration. •If aa = 00, then F = m * 00 = 00. •When Σ F = 0, the object is not accelerating. •We we can then say that the forces acting on the object cancel each other out and it is in a state of static equilibrium.
