a 10 N force pushes a body northward while a 15 N force acting at the same point of the body pushes it southward. Find equilbrant of these two forces.

do I add or subtract?

what about direction

  • science -

    South is the 180 degree opposite of north. You subtract to get the vector sum in this case.

    A 5 N force in the north direction will obviously create balance.

    That is what the equilbrant does.
