The sum of magnitude of two forces is 18 N and the magnitude of their resultant is 12 N.If the resultant makes an angle of 90degree with the smaller force,then find the magnitude of the forces.

  • Science -

    the question does not make sense..the resultant vector is always longer than the two vectors because it is formed by the 90degrees intersection of the smaller forces!!!..so how come the resultant vector form a 90degree with another smaller vector??? the smaller vectors should form a 90degrees...
