A 14700 kg sailboat experiences an eastward
force of 29800 N due to tide pushing its hull
while the wind pushes the sails with a force of
81500 N directed toward the northwest (45◦
westward of North or 45◦
northward of West).
What is the magnitude of the resultant acceleration of the sailboat?
Answer in units of m/s^2
