Non concurrent forces For concurrent forces R = 0 was sufficient for equilibrium. For non concurrent forces the particle idealization is no longer valid. For this case the condition R = 0, while still necessary for equilibrium, is not sufficient. A second restriction is related to tendency of a force to produce rotation (angular acceleration) of a body. This gives rise to the concept of moment of a force: F F
