Set a rigid body (a solid of any shape) composed by elements of solid. Not support forces, frictions or resultants. If the solid is placed above an inclined surface, the coordinates X and Y of the mass center, and the coordinates X and Y of all it’s elements, are measured from an X axis, parallel at surface and positive to upwards, and a Y axis perpendicular to surface and positive to upwards.
|Equations:||2 or 3. If all applied forces are vertical, are two equations (the sum of vertical forces and sum of moments). Isn’t allowed apply horizontal forces only, because FiscaLab assumes that the solid have a weight.|
|Name:||Name of the solid.|
|m:||Mass of the solid.|
|xc:||X coordinate of the center of mass.|
|yc:||Y coordinate of the center of mass.|
|ang:||Angle of the surface where the solid is placed. Is measured from the positive X axis and the positive sense is the opposite of clockwise.|
