1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am trying to find the resultant forces in the attached picture. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution The resultant of a couple of forces = 0 F in x direction = 5cos(45) F in y direction = -5sin(45) - 2 Therefore: R = ((5√2)/2)i + ((-(5√2)/2)-2)j R = √(3.53^2+(-5.53)^2) = 6.56kN is this correct does the distance of the 2kN force come in to play somewhere. If so where?
