## Which is the correct statement as per law of polygon of forces?

Polygon law of forces. It states, “If two forces acting simultaneously on a particle, be represented in magnitude and direction by the two sides of a triangle, taken in order; their resultant may be represented in magnitude and direction by the third side of the triangle, taken in opposite order.”

## What are the different systems of forces?

There are two main types of force systems namely coplanar, non-coplanar, concurrent and non-concurrent.

What is moment state Varignon’s Theorem?

The Principle of Moments, also known as Varignon’s Theorem, states that the moment of any force is equal to the algebraic sum of the moments of the components of that force.

### What is moment in force?

The Moment of a force is a measure of its tendency to cause a body to rotate about a specific point or axis. This is different from the tendency for a body to move, or translate, in the direction of the force. A moment is due to a force not having an equal and opposite force directly along it’s line of action.

### What are the two types of forces?

There are 2 types of forces, contact forces and act at a distance force. Every day you are using forces. Force is basically push and pull. When you push and pull you are applying a force to an object.

How do you calculate a moment?

1. The Moment of a force is a measure of its tendency to cause a body to rotate about a specific point or axis.
2. The magnitude of the moment of a force acting about a point or axis is directly proportinoal to the distance of the force from the point or axis.
3. Moment = Force x Distance or M = (F)(d)

#### What is law of transmissibility of forces and its limitations?

What is law of transmissibility of forces and its limitations? The state of rest or motion of rigid body will be unaltered if a force acting on a body will be replaced by another force of same magnitude and direction but acting anywhere on the body along the same line of action of applied force.

#### Which is an example of the principle of transmissibility?

Principle of transmissibility states that the state of rest or of motion of a rigid body will be unaltered if a force acting on the body will be replaced by another force of the same magnitude and direction but acting anywhere on the body along the same line of action of the applied forces.
