Physically, the equilibrant force will match the resultant in the opposite direction in order for the particle to reach equilibrium.2. The instruction pages2.1 The Purpose / or Objectives of the experimentThe purpose of this experiment is to understand how to (1) find resultant vectors in with anumber of forces acting on the force table, (2) calculate the resultant of the same force by drawing a vector diagram to scale to find its magnitude and direction, and (3) find the resultant using the analytical method, including using law of cosine for magnitude and law of sine for its direction.
