Can somebody please check my work? Any and all help is certainly appreciated!
F=ma is used
hi phunphysics2 !
your magnitude is correct, i'm not sure about your direction since i can't see which way you're measuring it
(but you need to write it out much better than this if you're going to pass an exam )
(and i don't understand how you managed to draw a diagram of this without any arrows in it)
Thanks for your response
1. The box is accelerating COMPLETELY to the right. I did not draw in the arrow at 0 degrees but it is noted in the problem
2. I used the standard xy plane for this problem. Origin is in the middle of the box and the arrow Q rests along the 90 degree mark.
The box that I drew was given to us as a picture in the problem
Is the vector notation correct?
p.s. I am a 2nd year English major taking calc-engineering physics. Scored 5% higher than the average in class, which was a passing grade
so j is up
then your second force must have negative j
you can either write everything in a continuous string of maths,
or you can write it out as a piece of english
but not as a disjointed collage
Separate names with a comma.
