The image above is an example of a balanced force. This image shows that the boy is being pulled down to the ground by gravity with the same amount of force that the floor is pushing him upwards.

The image below is also a balanced force because each man is putting in the same amount of force into pushing/pulling that they will stay balanced with each other and will not move.

The image below is an example of an unbalanced force because each man is putting in a different amount of force, and the man who is putting in the most amount of force will over power the the other and he will push/pull him.The man in blue has an advantage of 50N on the other man in red.

The image below is two cats on a balanced scale. Each cat is weighing down their side with 200N of force, so the scale is exact.

The image below is another example of unbalanced force. The smaller force is pushing with 60N and the bigger force is pushing with 100N in a different direction and so the bigger force would win with an advantage of 40N.

The last image is a man driving a car with 10N of force pushing him. The parachute on the back of the car will not stop him completely brcause it is only 7N. So the car would still have an advantage of 3N.
