# Drawing Free Body Diagrams

Drawing Free Body Diagrams. Once we have drawn an accurate free-body diagram, we can apply Newton's first law if the body is in equilibrium. It is generally customary in a free-body diagram to represent the object by a box and to draw the force arrow from the center of the box outward in the.

You can edit any of drawings via our online image editor. Free-body diagrams have been used in examples throughout this chapter. As the name suggests, the purpose of the diagram is to "free" the body from all other objects and surfaces around it so that it can be studied in isolation.

### For example, to find the forces on the pivot joint of a simple pair of pliers, it is helpful to draw a free body diagram of just one of the two pieces, not the entire.

If air resistance is negligible, then the only force is gravity. It is generally customary in a free-body diagram to represent the object by a box and to draw the force arrow from the center of the box outward in the. The free body diagram helps you understand and solve static and dynamic problem involving forces.
