Textbook Problem

If only one force acts on an object, can it be in equilibrium? Explain.

To determine
The state of equilibrium of an object upon the action of a single force.

Explanation

An object is said to be at the state of equilibrium when the net force acting on it is equal to zero.

At equilibrium, the vector sum of all the forces acting on the object must be equal to zero.

This can be represented mathematically as,

F1+F2+F3+........+Fn=0

In the above expression,
