  1   Engineering Mechanics: Static BSM 14 Mechanic 1 Lec : 2 Dr Arwa W. Hussein  2   Force Vectors  3   Introduction ã The objective for the current chapter is to investigate the effects of forces on particles: replacing multiple forces acting on a particle with a single equivalent or resultant   force, relations between forces acting on a particle that is in a state of equilibrium. - - ã The focus on  particles  does not imply a restriction to miniscule bodies. Rather, the study is restricted to analyses in which the size and shape of the bodies is not significant so that all forces may be assumed to be applied at a single point.  4   Resultant of Two Forces ã force: action of one body on another; characterized by its  point of application , magnitude , line of action , and  sense . ã Experimental evidence shows that the combined effect of two forces may be represented by a single resultant   force. ã The resultant is equivalent to the diagonal of a parallelogram which contains the two forces in adjacent legs. ã Force is a vector   quantity.
