Two kinds of equilibrium
Two Kinds of Equilibrium

  • Static equilibrium: Refers to the maintenance

  • of body (head) position relative to the force of

  • gravity.

  • Dynamic equilibrium: Refers to the maintenance

  • of the body (head) in response to sudden

  • movements such as rotation, acceleration,

  • and deceleration
