Two forces are applied to a car in an effort to accelerate it. one is 450N and is applied noth of west at a 10 degree angle and the other is 380N, applied north of east at a 30 degree angle. What is the resultant of these two forces?
I attatched a file to provide a visual aid even though it's not a very good. I'm confused by the question it self. A resultant is a vector representing the sum of two or more vectors. For the problems I've been doing, that usually the hypotenuse of a right triangle. If you draw an imaginary line down and then right or left depending on which vector, it makes a right triangle. It appears to me that they are already resultants.
