Force pull

    1. Two dogs, seperate by 137 degree of arc, grab a tire and pull simultaneously. The first dog pulls with a force of 220N. The second dog pulls with a force of 230N. A third dog joins in on the fun and grabs the tire as well, pulling just enough to bring thee other 2 dogs and the tire to a standstill.

    1. Relative to the pit bull, where is the 3rd dog?

    2. With how much force is the 3rd dog pulling the tire?

    2. F=MA

    Find the resultant of two forces 220 N and 230 N with an angle 137 degree with each other. That will be the pulling force of the third dog.
