During a football game, two players try to tackle another play. One player applies a force of 50.0 N to the east. A second player applies a force of 120.0 N to the north. What is the total applied force? (Since force is a vector, you must give both the magnitude and direction of the force.)

  • math - ,

    Are they tackling a play or a player?

    If a player, perform a vector addition of the two forces.

    The Pythagorean theorem can be used here, since the separate forces are perpendicular
