Direction of Equilibrant
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A 46 N force acts S32oW while a 56 N force acts S40oE. Calculate the magnitude and direction of the equilibrant.
2. Relevant equations
Not really sure...
3. The attempt at a solution
Well, I got the answer for the magnitude. I used C2=a2 + b2 - 2abcosC and I got 60 N.
But I do not understand how to get the direction. An explanation would greatly help!
