    - Different equilibrium conditions are to be satisfied when number of forces act together.

    - In the diagram shown above three forces are acting on an object. If summation of moment ΣM = 0 is the required condition, then third force must pass through the point where force F1 and F2 intersect.

    - Lami's theorem is a special condition of equilibrium when three forces act on an object.

    - According to Lami's theorem, a body is in equilibrium condition if each force among three coplanar, concurrent forces are proportional to sine angle between other two.
