Homework Help: Vector problems

  1. Dec 5, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    1.) Katie pushes on a cow with a force of 200 N while John pulls on the cow with a force of 250 N. If the cow pushes back with a force of 325 N, what is the resultant force vector?

    2.) Amanda is riding her flying cow towards north wth a velolcity of 280 m/s. If the wind blows from the west at 50 m/s, what is her resulant vector?

    3.) If Alex pulls a cow with a force of 890. N with a rope that is 25 degrees to the horizontal, what are the X and Y components of the force exerted by Alex?

    4.) A cow jumps off a diving board witha velocity of 9.5 m/s at a vertical angle of 22 degrees to the vertical. What are the X and Y components of the velocity?

    5.) Bob pulls a cow in a wagon with a force of 55 N at an angle of 38 degrees to the horizontal. What are the X and Y components of the force?

    2. Relevant equations
    Resultant vector=
    x and y components- angle degree measures

    3. The attempt at a solution

    givens- for #1 Katie's and John's force is in the same direction, the cow is resisting
