Two Forces

  1. Jun 18, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Forces F1 and F2 act on a mass m = 0.52 kg, as shown in the diagram below.
    The magnitudes of the forces and angles are as follows:
    F1 = 2.2 N, θ1 = 59 degrees
    F2 = 1.7 N, θ2 = 68 degrees
