# Forces and Newtons law of motion help a.s.a.p

A gust of wind blows an apple from a tree.
As the apple falls, the force of gravity on the
apple is 9.36 N downward, and the force of
the wind on the apple is 1.99 N to the right.

///////What is the magnitude of the net external
force on the apple?

///////What is the direction of the net external force
on the apple (measured from the downward
vertical, so that the angle to the right of
downward is positive)?

Hi n9900229, welcome to PF.
Please go through the rules of PF.
You have posted only the question and asking us to solve it for you.
You have to your attempt. At least the relevant equations you can use in the problem. You must know on what topic the problem is based.

ohh my bad, uhh i didnt know that i will keep that in mind for future posts for questions.

Thats the given basically and the question are the ///// format sorry, kinda in a bum rush right now.

Well my attempt is on paper i drew it out how it would look, but like on a graph. for like magnitude of the net external force, do i find the R or hypotenuse of the triangle that forms with this problem?
