Law of superposition - mechanics, Mechanical Engineering

Law of superposition:

When the two forces are in equilibrium (equal, collinear and opposite), their resultant is zero and their combined action on rigid body is equivalent to that of no force at all. Therefore

The action of the given system of forces on rigid body will not be changed if we add to or subtract from them another system of forces in equilibrium; this is called as law of superposition.
