1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the figure, force FB has four times the magnitude of force FA. Find the direction in which the particle moves, if it starts from rest. See figure 1 3. The attempt at a solution I was a bit confused about what exactly my answer is going to look like. I can find the x and y components of FB + FA, but that would be the net force on the object, not its direction. Can I say the direction of the net force is the direction of the particle? How exactly does one say that? The direction is Px = ... and Py = ... does not seem sufficient.
