Torque and Rotational Equilibrium. There are rotational analogs to Newton's
Laws of Motion: An object at rest, remains at rest (not rotating); an object rotating,
Then, we must also place it in a state of rotational equilibrium where the sum of
all of the torques equals zero. For horizontal beams in the plane of the page, the

maintain rotational equilibrium. For example, say the manager at the hardware ...
