Three forces of 5 N, 8 N, and 10 N act from the corner of a cube along its edges. Using Cartesian vectors, find the magnitude of the resultant force.

• Calculus -

magnitude^2
= hypotenuse^2
= 5^2 + 8^2 + 10^2
= 189
magnitude =√189 = appr 13.75

or

resultant = 5(1,0,0) + 8(0,1,0) + 10(0,0,1)
= (5,8,10)
maginitude of resultant = √(25+64+100) = √189 as above

thank you :)
