Following are four main difference in Resultant and Equilibrants force
||Definition: A resultant of number of forces acting on a body is a single. Force which can produce the same effect on the body as it is produced by all the forces acting together.
||Definition: An equilibrant of number of forces acting on a body is a single force which cancels the effect of resultant of a system of forces or which brings the system and the body is equilibrium.
||Resultant (net) force causes the displacement of a body (i.e. body moves).
||Equilibrant keeps the body at rest (i.e. in equilibrium).
||The set of forces which causes the displacement of a body are called as component of resultant or component forces.
||The set of forces which keeps the body at restate known as equilibrium forces or components of equilibrant.
||R represents the resultant of two concurrent forces P & Q.
||E represents the equilibrant of two concurrent forces P & Q.
