FORCES AS VECTORS
Vectors have a magnitude (amount) and a
direction.

Forces F1 and F2
are in different
directions They
are NOT in
equilibrium

F1

F2

## FORCES AS VECTORS (2 FORCES)

The two forces can be
drawn like this. (In the
correct direction and the
lengths should be drawn to
scale to represent the
magnitude of the forces)

F2

F1

If the two
forces do not
meet, the
system is not in
equilibrium

## FORCES AS VECTORS (2 FORCES)

If a third force (FE) was added in
the way shown the three would be
in equilibrium (They are all joined
up following each other, The force
system is balanced)

EQUILIBRANT

FE

## FORCES AS VECTORS (2 FORCES)

If the line joining the two forces
is in the opposite direction to
the equilibrant it is the
RESULTANT of the two forces
The forces area not in equilibrium and the
resultant shows the direction and
magnitude of the combination of the two
forces
