## Homework Statement

1. Two Forces of 692 N and 423 N acts at a point. The resultant force is 786 N. Find the angle between the Forces.[SOLVED]

2. Three forces acting at a point are in equilibrium. The forces are 980 lbs, 760 lbs and 1220 lbs. Find the angle between the forces (to the nearest minute)

## The Attempt at a Solution

1. I tried the Law of cosines and I got 91.96 [SOLVED....I had law of cosines wrong, instead of 2abCosX i had a 4]

2. No idea how to draw it out, or solve. How do you define minutes in relation to degrees? [Answer: 91.92, 141.49 , 126.6]
