Two fraternities are in a tug of war. Theta Chi is pulling with a total force of 4,748 newtons to the east and Tau Kappa is pulling with a total force of 3,969 newtons to the west. What is the magnitude and direction of the resultant? Which team will win? Is it better to pull the rope at an angle or straight on?

How is asking for help on a homework help site cheating?? I don't know where to start...

Looks like there's more than one Steve here. I (the usually nice one) did not make the cheating comment.

But then, how does one really know? Only the site owners, with their access to IP addresses can tell fer shure.

Alright but does anyone know how to solve this?

• Physics -

F(total) =4748 -3969 =779 (directed to the east)
Win – Theta Chi
It’s better to pull straight on
