# Coplannar Parallel Force

Coplannar parallel forces are a type of forces that can be in the same or opposite direction and are on the same plane but may differ in magnitude or application point. The coplannar parallel forces are \(F_1\) thru \(F_5\). When dealing with coplanar parallel forces, you can calculate their resultant force by finding the vector sum of all the individual forces. This can be done using vector addition techniques like the parallelogram law or by adding up the forces algebraically if they are given as vectors with magnitude and direction.

These types of forces are common in various physical scenarios, such as engineering, mechanics, and physics, where multiple forces act on an object or structure within the same plane. Understanding how to analyze coplanar parallel forces is crucial for solving problems related to equilibrium, motion, and structural stability.

\( R \) = resulting force acting on object | \(lbf\) | \(N\) |

\( F_1 + F_2 \;+ ... +\; F_n \) = coplannar parallel forces acting acting in same direction | \(lbf\) | \(N\) |
