    Hi!

    Thank you for your question 😉

    The resultant force is the sum of all the forces acting on an object.

    Conversely, the balancing force is a force that one exerts on an object. This force cancels out the other forces acting on the object. It cancels out the resulting force, canceling out the movement of the object.

    Hope that answers your question! Do not hesitate to come and see us if you have other questions.
