im having trouble filling in a table similar to this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

FORCE X COMPONENT (N) Y COMPONENT (N)

F1

F2

F3

SUM

these are the results:

when angle is 30 degrees

f1 =0.5N

f2 = 0.5N

f3 = 1.0N

when angle is 50 degrees

f1=1.6N

f2=1.3N

f3=1.4N

I used approx 100 grams on each vector. there is a diagram also i placed for added detail, the rectangles are the spring balances

and finally how do i prove it is a equillibrium and the expected magnitude and direction of the next force?

Thanks in advance.
