    Why the displacement value is different between these 2 simulation?

    Chee Hong Oo

      The system is in equilibrium with zero net force. Since apply force 570N & counterforce 570N.

       

      Why the displacement value is different & the direction also different?

      Apply 570N

      Counter force 570N

      Displacement 0.0134mm downward.

      and compare below with same constraint but only change the "area" of apply force

       

       

      Apply force 570N still the same.

      displacement 0.052mm upward.
