## EXCEEDING COSMIC LIMIT

“i’ve a beautiful doubt…normally we believe that nothing in dis world can cross cosmic limit…now suppose if 2 light particles(velocity=c) collide at right angles,,then their resultant will be [c*root2]…but that is greater than cosmic limit,right?????”

## Resultant magnetic force

What is resultant magnetic force? can you please explain with an example.

(Shreya)

When a magnetic substance (or a magnet) is placed in a region where there are multiple magnetic fields, the net force due to all of them is called the resultant.

In other words, it is that magnetic force which can effectively replace all other magnetic force acting on it

(Need more explanation? Post as comment to this post for details)

## What is resultant force?

“What is resultant force?”

When a number of frces are acting simultaneously on a body, it will be producing an effect – may be keeping the body in equilibrium, or giving it an acceleration in a particular direction.

Resultant of a number of forces is defined as that single force which can replace all other forces to produce the same effect.

If the number of forces acting on the body keep it at rest or maintain uniform motion,it is said to  be in equilibrium; then the resultant is zero (since acceleration is zero).
