What is the net force of the resultant force that acts on an object when it is an equilibrium?

The net or resultant force at equilibrium is zero.

At what angle is the resultant force acting?

it is acting opposite the the equilibrium.

How does the equilibrant force compare with the resulltant force?

The equilibrant force (FE) is equal in magnitude, but opposite in direction, to the resultant force (FR). When the sum of the forces (resultant force) acting on an object is not zero, the object is not in equilibrium. The equilibrant force is the force added to the resultant force, that will bring the object to equilibrium, i.e. zero. FE + FR = 0 FE = -FR.

What is the overall force acting on an object?

the resultant force

What is sum of the forces that are acting on an object?

Net Force, Or Net Resultant Force, or Resultant force

What is a resultant force?

Is the sum of forces acting on an object.

If an object has no net force acting on it?

it is in equilibrium.

Explain when a matter is in a state of equilibrium?

It is in equilibrium when the two conditions are satisfied - there is no net translational equilibrium and no net rotational equilibrium. For translational equilibrium, the summation of forces acting on the matter must equate to zero, which means that there is no resultant force. For rotational equilibrium, the sum of moments must be zero, which means there is no resultant torque. When these two conditions are met, the object will be stationary, i.e. it is in a state of equilibrium.

The combined force on an object?

this is the net resultant force acting on the object, taking into account all of the forces acting, their strength and direction.

A force of 20.0N is acting North concurrently with a force of 12.0N west. Find the resultant force?

[object Object]

What describes forces when the net force on an object is not 0 N?

The forces are not in equilibrium and there is a resultant(net, unbalanced) force on the object.

When you add all the forces acting on an object together what do you get?

The resultant force.
