COMPOSITION OF FORCES: The reduction of a given system of forces

to the simplest system that will be its equivalent is called the problem of

composition of forces.

RESULTANT FORCE: It is possible to find a single force which

will have the same effect as that of a number of forces acting on a

body. Such a single force is called resultant force.

The process of finding out the resultant force is called composition of

forces.

COMPOSITION OF CO-PLANAR CONCURRENT FORCE SYSTEM

COMPOSITION OF TWO FORCES: It is possible to reduce a given

system of forces i.e., two forces to the simplest system as its equivalent

(resultant force) with the help of parallelogram law of forces.

LAW OF PARALLELOGRAM OF FORCES:

If two forces, which act at a point be represented in magnitude and

direction by the two adjacent sides of a parallelogram drawn from one of its

angular points, their resultant is represented by the diagonal of the

parallelogram passing through that angular point, in magnitude and

direction.

COMPOSITON OF FORCES BY

RESOLUTION(Principle of resolved parts)

The components of each force in the system in two mutually

perpendicular directions are found.

Then, the components in each direction are algebraically

added to obtain the two components.

These two component forces which are mutually

perpendicular are combined to obtain the resultant force.

Moment of force F about O= F x a

= AB x OC

= twice the area of triangle OAB

Thus moment of F about O= 2 x Area of triangle OAB

COMPOSITION OF COPLANAR NON-

CONCURRENT FORCE SYSTEM

MOMENT OF A FORCE: Moment is

defined as the product of the magnitude of the force and

perpendicular distance of the point from the line of

action of the force.

GEOMETRICAL REPRESENTATION OF MOMENT

Consider a force F represented ,in magnitude and direction

by the line AB. Let O be a point about which the moment

of the force F is required. Let OC be the perpendicular

drawn. Join OA and OB

c

F

A

B

O

a

VARIGNONS PRINCIPLE OF MOMENTS:

If a number of coplanar forces are acting simultaneously on a particle, the algebraic sum

of the moments of all the forces about any point is equal to the moment of their resultant

force about the same point.

PROOF:

For example, consider only two forces F

1

and F

2

represented in magnitude and direction by AB and AC as shown in figure below.

Let O be the point, about which the moments are taken. Construct the parallelogram

ABCD and complete the construction as shown in fig.

By the parallelogram law of forces, the diagonal AD represents, in magnitude and

direction, the resultant of two forces F

1

and F

2

, let R be the resultant force.

By geometrical representation of moments

the moment of force about O=2 Area of triangle AOB

the moment of force about O=2 Area of triangle AOC

the moment of force about O=2 Area of triangle AOD

But,

Area of triangle AOD=Area of triangle AOC + Area of triangle ACD

Also, Area of triangle ACD=Area of triangle ADB=Area of triangle AOB

Area of triangle AOD=Area of triangle AOC + Area of triangle AOB

Multiplying throughout by 2, we obtain

2 Area of triangle AOD =2 Area of triangle AOC+2 Area of triangle AOB

i.e., Moment of force R about O=Moment of force F

1

about O + Moment of force F

about O

Similarly, this principle can be extended for any number of forces.
