Only two forces act on an object (mass= 3.8 kg). One force is pointing east with 40 N. The other has a force of 75.0 N at a 45 degree angle. Find the magnitude and direction (relative to the x-axis) of the acceleration of the object.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

pythagorean theorum

tan O= opp/adj

x y

53.03 53.03 < ---- found using 75sin45

40 0

= 97.03, 53.03 <--- resultant

pythagorean theorum with resultants = 110.58m/s

angle from tangent= 28.66 degrees
