Resultant forces

  1. Apr 1, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Use a suitable graphical method to determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant force acting the anchor point of two cables under tension as shown:

    will have to save the image to your computer, it is to small to view on myspace.

    im not asking anyone to solve my problem, just someone to help/explain how to work out the values for it.

    Thanks

    Break both vectors into x and y vectors. Keep track of directions, add the x vectors together, and the y vectors together, and you have two sides of a right triangle. Connect the two vectors together with a line from tail to head and that is your resultant vector.
