Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a free body diagram is just a simple way to see all forces affecting an object. these forces will typically include the force of gravity, the normal force, and any other forces exerted by / on the object

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Careful... a freebody diagram should only show forces acting ON the body, not forces exerted by the body on some other body. The key to forces is keeping straight who/what they are acting ON.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Free body diagram shows all forces acting on the body  external ones and the ones coming from the constraints, points on the body by which it is connected with other bodies. Examples are: forces from pin joints, surfaces in a contact with a body etc.They come from the third law of dynamics.
