1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This question is just for b) "Calculate the force acting on the object indicated in the diagram." 2. Relevant equations √ F12 + F22 = net force c2 = a2 + b2 -2ab cos A 3. The attempt at a solution So I first started by using a technique my friend taught me to find the force when there isn't an angle greater than 90 degrees. So I split the question into two parts. The upper part with the 45 degree angle, and the net force where the larger angle was. First Net Force √ F12 + F22 = net force (north, west) F1 = 8 + 17Ncos45° = 20.02 F2 = 17Ncos45° = 12.02 √ 545.28 = 23.4 N Second Net Force Angle between x-axis & 17N: 90° - 45° = 45° This angle will always give you the angle you need to solve c2 C2 = 102 + 172 – 2(10)(17)cos45° = 33.6 N Now I'm assuming I need to add both of these together? I'm also a little confused on how I'm going to find the angle of them. Because how do I add both net forces and their angles? A little confused by this.
