Two forces act on an object. The magnitude of the net force acting on the object
a. equals the sum of the magnitude of the two forces
b. equals the difference in the magnitudes of the two forces
c. equals the average of the two forces
d. cannot be determined from the given information

  • physics -

    d,
    force is vector, you need both magnitude and DIRECTION to find anything about the sum.
