Homework Help: Resultant Forces

  1. Mar 14, 2005 #1
    A particle P od mass 3kg moves under the action of two constant forces (6i+2j) and (3i-5j). How can i work out the resultant force F? This question is worth one mark, so I assume there must be a very simple method, but I cant think of any. Please help
