On the equilibrium of coplanar forces
European Journal of Physics
Most current texts on intermediate mechanics do not give a general method for finding the point of application of the equilibriant force needed to balance a set of coplanar forces. In this short paper we give a simple analytical method for finding the line of action which forms the locus of all points at which the equilibriant may be applied to attain balance.
