a force represented by the vector a=2i+-5j and the other exerts a force b=-8i-3j determine the combined force magnitude
The combined force magnitude refers to the total amount of force acting on an object, taking into account all the individual forces that are acting on it.
To determine the combined force magnitude, you need to add up all the individual forces acting on the object, taking into account their direction and magnitude. This can be done using vector addition or by using trigonometric functions.
Combined force magnitude refers to the total amount of force acting on an object, while net force refers to the overall force that results from the combination of all the individual forces acting on an object. Net force takes into account the direction and magnitude of all the forces, while combined force magnitude only looks at the total amount of force.
Yes, the combined force magnitude can be negative if the individual forces acting on an object are in opposite directions. In this case, the negative sign indicates that the forces are acting in opposite directions, canceling each other out to some degree.
The combined force magnitude is typically measured in Newtons (N) in the metric system or pounds (lbs) in the imperial system. Both units represent the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kilogram by 1 meter per second squared.
