  • #1
Hello guys,

I just need help understanding this question for my introductory physics class...my friend gave me the answer but im not really sure i trust him or beleive in his logic he used to figure it out...please help i attached the drawing so yall can see it!!

all it states is: what is the net force acting on the point....with the following answers

a. north with a force greater than 40N
b. south with a force greater than 40 N
c.north with a force less than 40 N

What do you think so far. This is basically all to do with resolving components of forces. Have you come across that before?

Well at first i was planning to add the the vectors to get the resultant force but i noticed it was at a 90 degree angle and didnt know if i was allowed to....but i know for sure the force will be north but as far as less or more im still a little stumped.....
