System of Forces

When several forces of different magnitude and direction act upon a body,

they constitute a system of forces.

If all the forces in a system lie in a single plane known as coplanar force system.

If the line of action of all the forces in a system passes 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 lies along a single line then it is known

as a collinear force system.
