What is balance & Unbalanced?

If two forces acting in an opposite direction are equal in size we have are in a term known as equilibrium. This is also known as balanced forces.

.Unbalanced forcres occur when two forces are not equal in size. When a force on one side is too strong it can cause a change in motion.

1.Two tugboats are moving,Tugboat A exerts a force of 3000 newtons towards Tugboat B. Tugboat B exerts a force of 5000 newtons in the same direction. What is the combined force ?2.Now Tugboat A exerts a force of 2000 newtons onTugboat B. Tugboat B exerts a force of 4000 newtons in the opposite direction. What is the combined force?3.How could we make both Tugboat A and B not move?

Can you answer me?
