It is supported at two points A and B, both located 1 meter from the side edges. One of the support points is fixed, while the other can move up and down. a) Explain what is necessary for the slab to be in static equilibrium. b) Calculate the force that the movable support point must exert to keep the slab in static equilibrium, if the mass of the slab is 750 kg. c) Discuss briefly the possible consequences of not using the principles of statics in the construction of such structures.
