two men decide to use their cars to pull a truck stuck in mud. They attach ropes and one pulls with a force of 688 N at an angle of 28° with respect to the direction in which the truck is headed, while the other car pulls with a force of 896 N at an angle of 20° with respect to the same direction.
What is the net forward force exerted on the truck in the direction it is headed. in units of N
Resultant in direction it headed = 688cos28 + 896cos20 = Answer in Newtons
