2 forces acton on a point.

  1. Sep 26, 2011 #1
    Two forces, F_1_vec and F_2_vec, act at a point, as shown in the picture. F_1_vec has a magnitude of 8.80 N and is directed at an angle of alpha = 65.0degree above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F_2_vec has a magnitude of 5.80 N and is directed at an angle of beta = 52.7 degrees below the negative x axis in the third quadrant.

    What is the x component F_x of the resultant force?

    What is the y component F_y 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.
