1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I know this is easy, but i cant seem to sort out how to structure it properly. This is the question: A man is pole vaulting. Also ignore air resistance. A man exerts a force of 810 N on a pole, at an angle of 80 degrees below the horizontal. If the man's weight is 600 N, what is the net force acting on the man as he pushes the pole away? Include the direction and the magnitude. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Would the net force by 810 + 600? And isn't it meant to have a direction as well? Sorry, im a bit confused.
