## What are collinear coplanar and concurrent force?

Coplanar forces: The forces, whose lines of action lie on the same plane, are known as coplanar forces. Collinear forces: The forces, whose lines of action lie on the same line, are known as collinear forces. Concurrent forces: The forces, which meet at one point, are known as concurrent forces.

### What is coplanar concurrent forces system?

A concurrent coplanar force system is a system of two or more forces whose lines of action ALL intersect at a common point. However, all of the individual vectors might not acutally be in contact with the common point.

#### What is concurrent force?

If the forces applied to a body are such that their lines of action meet at a single point, then they are called concurrent forces. Resultant of multiple forces on a body can be found using triangle and parallelogram law of vector addition and simplifies the problem solving by finding the net force on the particle.

**What is collinear force?**

When the line of action of forces is acting along the same line for a system, such force is defined as the collinear force.

**What is meant by coplanar vectors?**

Coplanar vectors are the vectors which lie on the same plane, in a three-dimensional space. These are vectors which are parallel to the same plane. We can always find in a plane any two random vectors, which are coplanar. Also learn, coplanarity of two lines in a three dimensional space, represented in vector form.

## What is concurrent forces and coplanar forces Class 11?

A force system is said to be concurrent, if the lines of all forces intersect at a common point (Fig). A force system is said to be coplanar, if the lines of the action of all forces lie in one plane (Fig).

### What are concurrent forces with examples?

A typical concurrent force situation is a lifting eye. The pulling forces in any cables must pass through the centre of the eye. If there is only one eyebolt (correctly positioned over the centre of gravity) and the load is suspended, the bolt force must pass through the same centre.

#### What is coplanar non concurrent forces?

The forces whose line of action lie on the same plane but they do not meet at one point are known as coplanar non-concurrent forces.

**What is concurrent and non concurrent forces?**

This basically means that When the forces acting on a FBD do not intersect at a common point, the system of forces is said to be non- concurrent. On the other hand, in a concurrent force system, all forces pass through a common point.

**What are concurrent vectors?**

A concurrent vector system is a set of two or more vectors whose lines of action intersect at a point. It is not necessary for all or any of the vectors to be actually in contact with the common point.

## What is collinear vector?

Collinear vectors are two or more vectors which are parallel to the same line irrespective of their magnitudes and direction.

### What is coplanar non-concurrent forces?

#### What is non collinear force?

Definition of noncollinear : not collinear: a : not lying or acting in the same straight line noncollinear forces. b : not having a straight line in common noncollinear planes.

**What is meant by non-coplanar concurrent forces?**

Non-coplanar concurrent forces: The forces, which meet at one point, but their lines of action do not lie on the same plane, are known as non-coplanar concurrent forces.

**What is coplanar point?**

In geometry, a set of points in space are coplanar if there exists a geometric plane that contains them all. For example, three points are always coplanar, and if the points are distinct and non-collinear, the plane they determine is unique.
