Statics is an essential basic knowledge in mechanical and civil engineering practices. The knowledge is about to apply the resultant and equilibrium of forces to solve mechanics problems by constructing free body diagrams for particles and rigid bodies. The Newton’s Law is applied in formulating the moment and equilibrium equations to solve mechanics issues such as friction, trusses, frame and machines applications. Other related knowledge that ones should possess are the concept of distributed forces, which include centroid and centre of gravity, and the generated surface area and volume of revolution.
