The two forces F1 and F2 act on a 27-kg object on a frictionless tabletop. If F1 = 7.1 N and F2 = 33 N, find the net force on the object and its acceleration.

WHAT IN the world...how do i figure this out!

  • physics -

    The direction of the forces is important.

  • physics -

    F2 is straight up at a 90 degree angle to the x axis, and F1 and F2 form an 120 degree angle
