With the help of an experiment or an activity, show and verify the following:

  • When two unequal forces act on a body in opposite direction, then the  effective force  is equal in magnitude to "the difference of the two forces" and acts in the greater force direction.

Dear student,
See the diagram below.
We apply a force of 10N to a block in the right direction and 20N towards left direction.
Since these two forces are in opposite direction so they will cancel each other.

The net force on the block =10 N towards left

Hope it clears your doubt.
