A particle is acted upon two forces given by the vector equations,

F1=1.5i-0.7j and

with values measured in Newtons(N). Calculate the resultant force, in N, acting on the particle, giving your answer to 3 dec places.

  • Physics -

    The resultant vector is
    -1.6i +2.9j
    and its magnitude is
    sqrt[1.6^2 + 2.9^2]= 3.31 N
