The Resultant of Two Forces - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

When vectors represent forces, their sum is called the resultant. The resultant of two forces can be found using the methods for adding vectors when the vectors are a geometric representation. When using methods for the algebraic representation to find the resultant of two forces, it can be helpful to understand the components of a force.
