The example above is the simple diagram printable. A force diagram is simply a diagram showing all the forces acting on an object, the force’s direction and its magnitude. It is a simplification of the picture that shows just the forces and used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object in a given situation. The size of the arrow in a free-body diagram reflects the magnitude of the force. The direction of the arrow shows the direction that the force is acting. Each force arrow in the diagram is labeled to indicate the exact type of force. Examples of force diagram is shown at the right.

The only rule for drawing force diagrams is to depict all the forces that exist for that object in the given situation. It is extremely important to know the various types of forces. Begin by using your understanding of the force types to identify which forces are present. Then determine the direction in which each force is acting. Finally, draw a box and add arrows for each existing force in the appropriate direction; label each force arrow according to its type. If necessary, refer to the list of forces and their description in order to understand the various force types and their appropriate symbols.
