-What is the x component of the resultant force?

-What is the y component of the resultant force?

-What is the magnitude of the resultant force?

Im confused.

**Damon**, Monday, May 30, 2011 at 5:34pmHow much of F1 is in the +x direction?

F1x = -8 cos 56

How much of F2 is in the +x direction?

F2x = -5 cos 52.9

So how much total in the +x direction?

Fx = F1x+F2x = -8cos56-5cos52.9

How much of F1 is in the +y direction?

F1y = +8 sin 56

How much of F2 is in the +y direction?

F2y = -5 sin 52.9

How much total is in the +y direction?

Fy = +8sin56-5sin52.9

then

|F| = sqrt(Fx^2+Fy^2)
