# Finding x and y components

 P: 6 I've been stuck on this problem for too long and need help. Please explain the answer if possible. F1 has a magnitude of 8.80 n and is directed at an angle of $$\alpha$$= 65.0 above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F2 has a magnitude of 6.40 N and is directed at an angle of $$\beta$$ = 53.3 below the negative x axis in the third quadrant. What is the x component Fx of the resultant force? What is the y component Fy of the resultant force? What is the magnitude F of the resultant force? What is the angle $$\gamma$$ that the resultant force forms with the negative x axis? In this problem, assume that positive angles are measured clockwise from the negative x axis. Attached Thumbnails
