what is the difference between composition of forces and resolution of forces?
for 2 forces represented by vectors, it is likely that
these 2 forces are not perpendicular to each other
and point in different directions. Thus, the
resolution of forces is to find the equivalent of the
force in the x or y-direction. [ i.e the force is
resolved in the horizontal or vertical direction. then it would be easier to find the net force of
these 2 forces. I would interpret the
'composition of forces' as 1.
what that force is made up of in the horizontal
and vertical direction or 2. it is the resultant force
of 2 forces ]
