## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

If 2 people are holding a bag at an angle of 45 degrees each, and then only person is going to hold it, it is being said that the force that will have to be applied by that one person will be 1.5 times greater than when he was applying it together with the other. Can anyone explain this or provide a source where I can find information on it considering I am just a beginner in the area (I can work with the SOHCAHTOA rule and know how to break gravity force in its X and y component).
