Resultant Forces

Resultant force = all the forces acting on a body combined.

It is a single force that has the same effect on the body as all of the individual forces acting together.

A resultant force of zero means that all the forces are balanced.

If the sum of forces acting upon a stationery object is zero, the object remains stationery.

A moving object with a zero resultant force moves at the same speed in the same direction.
