  Statics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Statics is the branch of physics concerned with physical systems in static equilibrium, that is, in a state where the relative positions of subsystems do not vary over time, or where components and structures are at rest under the action of external forces of equilibrium.
When in static equilibrium, the system is either at rest, or moving at constant velocity through its center of mass.
Statics is thoroughly used in the analysis of structures, for instance in architectural and structural engineering.

Since statics, mechanics of materials SI system of units is an absolute system based on the units of time, length, and mass, whereas the U.S. customary system is a gravitational system based on the units of time, length, and force, different approaches are required for the solution of many problems.
In statics, they may involve the analysis of a structure for various configurations and loadings of statics, mechanics of materials structure, or the determination of the equilibrium positions of a given mechanism which may require an iterative method of solution.
Statics is the study of the conditions under which mechanical and other systems remain in a configuration ("state") which does not change with time.

Comparative statics is the comparison of two different equilibrium states, before and after a change in one of the variables.
Being a study of statics it compares two different unchanging points, once they have changed.
It is one of the primary analytical methods used in economics, where it is very commonly used in the study of changes in supply and demand when analyzing a market.

Statics for a shot or geophone are found by replacing the time from surface to bottom of model with a time based upon a user specified replacement velocity.
The shot and geophone statics computed from the correlation picks are applied to the traces to start the next iteration.

Developing concept-questions for statics is part of a larger project focused on development, evaluation, and national dissemination of instructional materials for statics.
The questions were used in the fall 1999 semester in two sections of statics at North Dakota State University (enrollments of 50 and 100 engineering students) and one section of 22 engineering technology students at Arizona State University East.
While as instructors we believe that the use of concept questions in engineering problem courses like statics is important, students are harder to convince.

Introducing Shaping Structures: Statics, the first textbook to teach statics in the context of designing structural form.
By Newton's second law, this situation implies that the net force and net torque (also known as motion) on every subsystem is zero, meaning that for every force bearing upon a member, there must be an equal and opposite force.
Since the time of Paul Samuelson's Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947), the focus has been on "comparative statics", i.e., the comparison of one static equilibrium to another, with little or no discussion of the process of going between them --- except to note the exogenous changes that caused the movement.

The most common application involves the analysis of the forces acting upon a sign that is at rest.

 Active Statics
Active Statics is a set of eight highly interactive demonstrations that involve the user in experimentation with the relationship between structural form and forces.
For maximum transparency and creative potential, these demonstrations are based on graphic statics, a body of techniques used by such masters as Antonio Gaudi, Gustave Eiffel, and Robert Maillart to create their structural masterpieces.
These can be learned from Zalewski and Allen, Shaping Structures: Statics (New York, John Wiley and Sons, 1998, ISBN 0-471-16968-4), and from the companion CD-ROM lessons in graphic statics by Joseph Iano (New York, John Wiley and Sons, 1998, ISBN 0-471-28338-X).
