3 How can we describe forces acting on an object? Two or more forces that act on the same object at the same time are called Two or more forces that act on the same object at the same time are called concurrent forces. concurrent forces. Ex: Ex:

4 Combining forces Resultant force (net force) Resultant force (net force) Is the single force that is equivalent to the combined effect of these concurrent forces. Is the single force that is equivalent to the combined effect of these concurrent forces. Example 1: Example 1: F 1 =10N F 2 =5N R = 15N F eq = -15N

5 The force vector needed to produce equilibrium is the same length as the resultant vector but it is pointing in the opposite direction. (F eq ) The force vector needed to produce equilibrium is the same length as the resultant vector but it is pointing in the opposite direction. (F eq )

6 Example: 3 Example: 3 If forces act in opposite directions, the angle between them is 180 degrees, the resultant force is the smallest. If forces act in opposite directions, the angle between them is 180 degrees, the resultant force is the smallest. F 1 = 3N F 2 = 10N F 1 = 3N F 2 = 10N

7 Combining forces Head-to-tail method – combine the head of one vector to the tail of the other vector. Head-to-tail method – combine the head of one vector to the tail of the other vector. If two forces act in the same direction, the angle between them is 0 degrees and the resultant force is the sum of their magnitudes (R = F 1 +F 2 ) If two forces act in the same direction, the angle between them is 0 degrees and the resultant force is the sum of their magnitudes (R = F 1 +F 2 ) Ex2: Ex2: F 1 =10N F 2 =3N F 1 =10N F 2 =3N R = 13N

8 Sketch the Resultant force and Equilibrium force

9 How can we sketch the equilibrium force? The vector sum of the concurrent forces acting on an object is called the net force F net. (Resultant force) The vector sum of the concurrent forces acting on an object is called the net force F net. (Resultant force) If the net force acting on the object is zero, the object is in equilibrium. If the net force acting on the object is zero, the object is in equilibrium. F1 F2 F1 F2 R F eq

10 If two concurrent forces act at right angles to each other, the head-to-tail method produces a right triangle. If two concurrent forces act at right angles to each other, the head-to-tail method produces a right triangle. F2 F1 F2 F1 R

11 When is resultant force is greater? When is resultant force is greater? When the two forces act in the same direction, 0 degree angle, they produce the largest resultant force. When the two forces act in the same direction, 0 degree angle, they produce the largest resultant force. When the two forces act in opposite directions, 180 degree angle, they produce the smallest resultant force. When the two forces act in opposite directions, 180 degree angle, they produce the smallest resultant force.

13 Triangular method of adding concurrent forces. Leave the first force in the same position. Take the second force and slide it to the head of the first force. (Head-to-tail method) Leave the first force in the same position. Take the second force and slide it to the head of the first force. (Head-to-tail method) To find the resultant force: draw a line from the tail of the first force vector to the head of the last vector. To find the resultant force: draw a line from the tail of the first force vector to the head of the last vector. To find the equilibrium force: draw the same size line as the resultant force but 180° from the resultant force.
