## Question:

The equilateral triangular plate has a pin joint support at its geometric center (A) and sides that are 2 m long. The plate has two external forces {eq}F_{B} {/eq} and {eq}F_{c} {/eq} and is in static equilibrium. The weight of the plate can be neglected. ## Force :

It is a push or a pull which changes or tends to change the state of motion of an object which may be at rest or in uniform motion previously.

It is measured in Newton.
