Equilibrant

The force required to keep a system of forces in equilibrium

The force required to keep a system of forces in equilibrium is called the equilibriant of the system.

Equilibrant - the force required to keep a system of forces in balance

In the example above the two forces F1 and F2 can be added to F(1,2)

The equilibrant E acting in the opposite direction of F(1,2) keeps the system in balance.
