What is the magnitude and direction of the resultant force.
Asked Feb 11, 2010, 07:26 AM
I have a question which requires finding the magnitude and direction of a resultant force (including angles as to be able to accurately draw on paper). The question is written as follows:
"consider two forces, F1 and F2, of magnitudes 17N and 9N respectively, acting on a particle (diagram). what is the magnitude and direction of the resultant forces?"
I have attached the drawing given.
Any help would be appreciated, preferably with working out so I can see how it is done for any future reference.
