# Statics/Three-Dimensional Equilibrium

< Statics

There are six equations expressing the equilibrium of a rigid body in 3 dimensions.

Sum of Forces: , ,

Sum of Moments: , ,

To solve three dimensional statics problems:

Im mad bc why r there only 5 problems here i need the six specific equilibruim equations for a 3 dimensional system. HELP BRO.

- Resolve force components
- Resolve moments about a point
- Resolve moments about a line or axis. See Scalar Triple Product

Knowing how to find the Determinate of a matrix can help a lot here.
