### What is concurrent forces in space?

When all the forces of a force system act in one plane it is
called coplanar force system. If the forces act in more than one
plane then it is forces in space. In this case forces are not
contained in one plane.
When all the forces of a system pass through a common point they
are called concurrent forces. Thus we have concurrent coplanar
forces when all forces are in one plane and pass through a common
point. Also when forces in space pass through a common point we
have concurrent forces in space.

### What the meaning of non-coplanar forces?

Think of a plane as a sheet of invisible paper that goes forever
in four directions. Coplanar means the things are on the same plane
(sheet). Non- coplanar are not. Any two forces are automatically
coplanar with each other, but when you get to three or more, they
can be non-coplanar. So, with 3 forces, think of another sheet of
paper that is at a different orientation than the first sheet. If
you have two forces whose vectors (directions) are totally acting
within one plane (sheet), but you have a third force acting in the
direction of the second sheet, they are non-coplanar.
Another way to think of it is with coordinate axes. The x and y
axis are on one plane (a sheet of paper going forever in four
directions can totally contain them), but the z axis is not on the
same plane as the x and y axes are together, since you can't pass
one flat sheet through the x and y axes and the z axis at the same
time. Likewise, a sheet can be passed through the x and z axes at
the same time, so they are coplanar, but it can't be passed through
the x, z and y axes at the same time, so they are non-coplanar.
