Determine magnitude and direction of the resultant force:

A system of forces is acting at the corner of a rectangular block as shown in the figure. Determine magnitude and direction of the resultant force.

Sol.: Let R be resultant of given system. And  ∑ H and  ∑ V be the horizontal and vertical component of the resultant.

∑H = 25 - 20 = 5KN                                                                                     ...(i)

∑V = -50 - 35 = - 85KN                                                                          ...(ii)

R2 = ∑H2 + ∑V2

R2 = (5)2  + (-85)2

R = 85.14N                                                                               .......ANS

Let Resultant makes an angle of θ with the horizontal tanθ = ∑V/ ∑H = -85/5

Let resultant 'R' is at perpendicular distance'd' from the point A,

For finding position of resultant that is 'd', taking moment about point 'A'., or apply the varignon's theorem

R.d = 25 X 3 + 35 X 4

d = (75 + 140)/85.14

d =  2.53 m from the point A       .......ANS
