# A Body is Acted Upon by Two Forces, Each of Magnitude F, but in Opposite Directions. State the Effect of the Forces When (A) Both Forces Act at the Same Point of Thtwo Forces Act at Two Dion D. - Physics

A body is acted upon by two forces, each of magnitude F, but in opposite directions. State the effect of the forces when
(a) Both forces act at the same point of the body.
(b) The two forces act at two different points of the body at a separation d.

#### Solution

(a) If both the forces act at the same point of the body, they have the same line of action, and then the moment becomes zero.
(b) If both the forces act at two different points of the body at a separation d then they constitute a torque whose value is given F x d.

Concept: Moment (Turning Effect) of a Force Or Torque
