Example text

A force is a vector quantity, because its effect depends on the direction as well as on the magnitude of the action.

The experience gained here will help you in the study of mechanics and in other subjects such as stress analysis, design of structures and machines, and fluid flow. This chapter lays the foundation for a basic understanding not only of statics but also of the entire subject of mechanics, and you should master this material thoroughly. 2/2 FORCE Before dealing with a group or system of forces, it is necessary to examine the properties of a single force in some detail. A force has been defined in Chapter 1 as an action of one body on another.

2/2 FORCE Before dealing with a group or system of forces, it is necessary to examine the properties of a single force in some detail. A force has been defined in Chapter 1 as an action of one body on another. In dynamics we will see that a force is defined as an action which tends to cause acceleration of a body. A force is a vector quantity, because its effect depends on the direction as well as on the magnitude of the action.
