1. What is the x component of the resultant force?

2. What is the y component of the resultant force?

3. What is the magnitude of the resultant force?

This is the answer provide by Drwls:

1. -8.80 cos 64.0 -7.00 cos 52.8

2. 8.80 sin 64.0 - 7.00 sin 52.8

3. Take the square root of the sum of squares of the two components given above.

Can someone show me how to express the answer for 1 and 2 in Newtons unit. Thanks

Use your calculator to find the sines and cosines and multiply.

For example:

-8.80 cos 64 = -8.80*.43837

= -3.51 N
