Resultant of Non-Concurrent Force System Jhun Vert Sat, 04/18/2020 - 10:35 am

The resultant of non-concurrent force system is defined according to magnitude, inclination, and position.
 

The magnitude of the resultant can be found as follows

$R_x = \Sigma F_x$

$R_y = \Sigma F_y$

$R = \sqrt{{R_x}^2 + {R_y}^2}$
