Equilibrium of a rigid body-conditions and physics

Equilibrium of a Rigid body A rigid body is said to be in mechanical equilibrium, if both its linear momentum and angular momentum are not changing with time. In other words, the body is in mechanical equilibrium when it has neither linear acceleration nor angular acceleration.This means the conditions for equilibrium can be expressed as
