1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data As a sailboat sails 55 m due north, a breeze exerts a constant force F1 on the boat's sails. This force is directed at an angle west of due north. A force F2 of the same magnitude directed due north would do the same amount of work on the sailboat over a distance of just 42 m. What is the angle between the direction of F1 and due north? 2. Relevant equations Don't know if this pertains to adding the forces together. 3. The attempt at a solution I assume that trigonometry is involved here to solve this problem. Other than that, that's how far I have gotten into the problem.
