in a tug of war the left team pulls with a force of 300N and the right team pulls with a force of 150N. what is the resultant force?

1. Tom

They are in opposite directions, so subtract to find the resultant force.

2. M@S

300 - 150
150 N

3. Henry

Fr = -300 + 150 = -150 N. = 150 N. to the left.
