In this lesson, we will learn how to find the resultant of a system of two parallel coplanar forces having opposite directions.

Q1:

Two parallel forces have magnitudes of 24 N and 56 N as shown in the figure. The distance between their lines of action is 80 cm. Given that the two forces are acting in opposite directions, determine their resultant π and the distance π₯ between its line of action and point π΄ .

Q2:

Two parallel forces have magnitudes of 24 N and 60 N as shown in the figure. The distance between their lines of action is 90 cm. Given that the two forces are acting in opposite directions, determine their resultant π and the distance π₯ between its line of action and point π΄ .

Q3:

A force of 31 newtons is acting on a point π΄ , while a parallel force of πΉ newtons is acting on a point π΅ . The magnitude of the resultant of these two forces is 73 newtons. If the 31-newton force and the resultant are acting in opposite directions, what is the value of πΉ ?

Given that π΅ πΆ = 1 2 c m when the two forces are acting in the same direction, and their resultant is 28 N when they are acting in opposite directions, determine the magnitude of each of the two forces.

Q10:

The magnitude of the resultant of two parallel forces πΉ 1 and πΉ 2 equals 61 N. The magnitude of πΉ 1 equals 112 N and the distance between πΉ 1 and the line of action of the resultant is 17 cm. If πΉ 1 and the resultant have opposite directions, find the magnitude of the second force πΉ 2 and the distance between the lines of action of the forces π , rounding this answer to two decimal places.

Their resultant π is acting on point πΆ , where πΆ β π΄ π΅ and π΄ πΆ = 2 0 cm. If πΉ ο§ and πΉ ο¨ are acting in opposite directions, find the magnitudes of πΉ ο§ and π .
