Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Corin on Monday, November 12, 2007 at 10:51pm.

This is probably a really easy question, but I just don't know how to set it up.

An object in equilibrium has three forces exerted on it. A 33 N force acts at 90 degrees from the x-axis and a 44 N force acts at 60 degrees. What are the magnitude and direction of the third force?

I tried drawing a triangle, but I don't know what to solve for. I put 33 N as the vertical line and 44 N 30 degrees off from this line.

I'm so confused!!!

Thanks to anyone that helps! :-)
