A 0.5 kg ball initially at rest is subject to three forces:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. F1 has a magnitude equal to 5.0 N and points 36.9 degrees above the horizontal direction (relative to the positive x direction),

2. F2 has a magnitude equal to 2.0 N and points to the left (negative x direction),

3. F3 has a magnitude equal to 4.0 N and points straight down (negative y direction).

Given these forces, answer the following questions:

a. Draw a free-body diagram showing the forces acting on the ball. Be sure to draw

vectors with the correct lengths. Determine the x- and y-components of each force

and label those values on your diagram.

b. Calculate the x- and y-components of the net force acting on the ball.

c. Calculate the x- and y-components of the ballâ€™s acceleration.

d. Calculate the total distance traveled by the ball after 3.0 s.
