If these two forces are subtracted from the system, the resulting system is as shown in Fig.

Looking at the system of forces in Figs. This law was formulated based on experimental results. Though Stevinces employed it in , the credit of presenting it as a law goes to Varignon and Newton This law states that if two forces acting simultaneously on a body at a point are presented in magnitude and direction by the two adjacent sides of a parallelogram, their resultant is represented in magni- tude and direction by the diagonal of the parallelogram which passes through the point of intersection of the two sides representing the forces.

Then according to this law, the diagonal AD represents the resultant in the direction and magnitude. Then AD should represent the resultant of F1 and F2. Then we have derived triangle law of forces from fundamental law parallelogram law of forces. The Triangle Law of Forces may be stated as If two forces acting on a body are represented one after another by the sides of a triangle, their resultant is represented by the closing side of the triangle taken from first point to the last point.

If more than two concurrent forces are acting on a body, two forces at a time can be combined by triangle law of forces and finally resultant of all the forces acting on the body may be obtained. A system of 4 concurrent forces acting on a body are shown in Fig. Let it be called as R2. The units of all other quantities may be expressed in terms of these basic units. The units of length, mass and time used in the system are used to name the systems.

Using these basic units, the units for other quantities can be found. For example, in MKS the units for the various quantities are as shown below: From eqn. Hence the constant of proportionality k becomes units. Unit of force can be derived from eqn. Gravitational acceleration is 9. In all the problems encountered in engineering mechanics the variation in gravitational acceleration is negligible and may be taken as 9.

Hence the constant of proportionality in eqn. Unit of Constant of Gravitation From eqn. Thus if two bodies one of mass 10 kg and the other of 5 kg are at a distance of 1 m, they exert a force 6.

Now let us find the force acting between 1 kg-mass near earth surface and the earth. Hence the force between the two bodies is 6. Thus weight of 1 kg mass on earth surface is 9. Compared to this force the force exerted by two bodies near earth sur- face is negligible as may be seen from the example of 10 kg and 5 kg mass bodies.

Denoting the weight of the body by W, from eqn. Any body falling freely near earth surface experiences this acceleration. The value of g is 9. The prefixes used in SI system when quantities are too big or too small are shown in Table 1. Table 1. It may be noted that a force is completely specified only when the following four characteristics are specified: At point C, a person weighing N is standing. The force applied by N B the person on the ladder has the following characters: Note that the magnitude of the force is written near the arrow.

The line of the arrow shows the line of application and the arrow head represents the point of application and the A direction of the force. If all the forces in a system do not lie in a single plane they constitute the system of forces in space. If all the forces in a system lie in a single plane, it is called a coplanar force system. If the line of action of all the forces in a system pass through a single point, it is called a concurrent force system.

In a system of parallel forces all the forces are parallel to each other. If the line of action of all the forces lie along a single line then it is called a collinear force system. Various system of forces, their characteristics and examples are given in Table 1.

Coplanar parallel forces All forces are parallel to each other System of forces acting on a beam and lie in a single plane. Coplanar like parallel All forces are parallel to each other, Weight of a stationary train on a forces lie in a single plane and are acting rail when the track is straight.

Coplanar concurrent forces Line of action of all forces pass Forces on a rod resting against a through a single point and forces wall. Coplanar non-concurrent All forces do not meet at a point, Forces on a ladder resting against forces but lie in a single plane.

Non-coplanar parallel All the forces are parallel to each The weight of benches in a class- forces other, but not in same plane. Non-coplanar concurrent All forces do not lie in the same A tripod carrying a camera. Non-coplanar All forces do not lie in the same Forces acting on a moving bus.

A quantity is said to be scalar if it is completely defined by its magnitude alone. Examples of scalars are length, area, time and mass.

A quantity is said to be vector if it is completely defined only when its magnitude as well as direction are specified. Hence force is a vector. The other examples of vector are velocity, acceleration, momentum etc.

We come across several relations among the physical quantities. Some of the terms may be having dimensions and some others may be dimensionless.

However in any equation dimensions of the terms on both sides must be the same. This is called dimensional homogenity. The branch of mathematics dealing with dimensions of quantities is called dimensional analysis. There are two systems of dimensional analysis viz. In absolute system the basic quantities selected are Mass, Length and Time.

Hence it is known as MLT-system. In gravitational system the basic quantities are Force, Length and Time. Hence it is termed as FLT-system. The dimensions of some of the physical quantities are listed in Table 1. Dimensions of Quantities Sr. Velocity LT—1 LT—1 2. Acceleration LT—2 LT—2 3.
