Homework Help: Mechanics problem - Newtons laws - resultant force

Posted by John on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 3:00am.

I have this mechanics problem. Please help me solve it.

Rory, Aurora and Raoul are three lions fi ghting over a piece of meat of mass 12
kg.
Each lion exerts a horizontal pull. Rory pulls with a force of 800 N.
Aurora, who is 120degrees to Rory's right, exerts a force of 400 N.
Raoul is 140 degrees to Rory's left.
The meat accelerates in Rory's direction.
(a) Find the force which Raoul is exerting.


Thank you in advance.
