Homework Statement
can you judge the diagram I want to make sure i have the forces being exerted in the correct order.
That's the correct direction. If you add the vectors correctly, you will also get the correct magnitude !Homework Statement

Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
No. That won't give the correct answer.One more question sam. I have want to make sure I clearly understand, Lets call the top top electron E1, and bottom E2.
I only have to get the Cosine of the bottom election because it is on the horizontal and not on an angle, but for E1 I have to get both the sin and cos.
And to get the magnitude I can simply add squareroot fsin(theta)+2fcos(theta) ?
Earlier you said "squareroot fsin(theta)+2fcos(theta)".Pretty much my theta is 65 degrees and what im doing is this
√(F)^2+(Fsin(65))^2+(Fcos(65))^2
and I don't understand how it isnt giving me the answer
Now that a complete answer to a similar, but more detailed problem has been given in another of your threads, I'll give the solution here, arrived at in two ways.Pretty much my theta is 65 degrees and what im doing is this
√(F)^2+(Fsin(65))^2+(Fcos(65))^2
and I don't understand how it isn't giving me the answer
