Two athletes are pulling on a ring. One athlete pulls with a force of 150 N in
a northerly direction. The second athlete pulls with a force of 200 N in a
westerly direction. Calculate the magnitude [5 marks] and direction (relative
to west) [5 marks] of the resultant of these two forces?

maths 
Steve,
(0,150) + (200,0) = (200,150)
= 250N at W 36.9°N
