## Homework Statement

Find the magnitude and direction of 4 concurrent coplanar forces:

10N 32 degrees east of north

35N 50 degrees east of north

25N 72 degrees east of north

85N 40 degrees east of south

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

choose X and Y axis along north, south direction

Find X,Y components like in the pic.

find the net force of vector components along X axis by by adding vectors in same direction and subtracting the ones in opposite direction.

do same for Y axis.

Then find the net force of X and Y forces using this: sqrt(F_{X} + F_{Y})

Find X,Y components like in the pic.

find the net force of vector components along X axis by by adding vectors in same direction and subtracting the ones in opposite direction.

do same for Y axis.

Then find the net force of X and Y forces using this: sqrt(F

Then find the net force of X and Y forces using this: sqrt(F_{X}+ F_{Y})

Of course you mean sqrt(F
