Solution

Balanced forces : If the resultant of all the forces acting on a body is zero, the forces are called balanced forces.
Example: When we push a concrete wall with our hands the wall doesn't move. This is because the force by us is balanced by the other forces acting on the wall.

Unbalanced force : If the resultant of all the forces acting on a body is not zero, the forces are called unbalanced force.
Example: If we push a toy car lying on the ground, we find that the toy car starts moving. This is because the force exerted by our hand is not balanced by the other forces acting on the toy car.
