Experiment 4 – Resultant and Equilibrant Forces ABSTRACT: A force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a change in speed, a change in direction or a change in shape. It is which that can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest) i.e. to accelerate or which can cause a flexible object to deform. Gravity is a force that attracts objects toward the Earth. It is an approximation of the gravitational force that attracts objects of mass toward each other at great distances. Gravitational force was used in the experiment to

II. Guide Questions: 1. Differentiate the resultant and the equilibrant of two forces. Answer: Resultant force is a force which is the result of two or more forces acting conjointly or results of two or more motions combined. On the other hand, the equilibrant force is opposite and equal to the resultant force. It causes a system to be in equilibrium. 2. If three concurrent forces are in equilibrium, what is the relation between any one of the three forces and the resultant of the other forces Answer: Each of the three forces is a negative vector of the resultant of the two other forces. 3. If two forces with the same magnitude were exactly in opposite directions, what is the magnitude and direction of their resultants? What is the magnitude and direction of their equilibrium?* Answer: If both forces has the same magnitude and are in opposite directions, then they would be in equilibrium. Their resultant force would be zero since the forces are cancelled out since they have the same magnitude and opposing direction. 4. Use the component method to find the magnitude and direction of the resultant of the concurrent forces given below:
