    equation for Fnet

    Fnet=EFx(squared)+ EFy(squared)

    EFx= the sum of all forces in the x
    EFy= the sum of all forces in the y

    Re: equation for Fnet

    I'm afraid this is wrong. Fnet too had to be squared. (Pythagoras Theorem)

    i forgot to put that its the square root of EFx(squares) + EF(squared)
    oops :smile:
