The figure below shows a claw hammer being used to pull a nail out of a horizontal board where θ = 32.2°. The mass of the hammer is 1.00 kg. A force of 125 N is exerted horizontally as shown, and the nail does not yet move relative to the board. Assume the force the hammer exerts on the nail is parallel to the nail. the contact point is 30 cm from the force and the head of the nail is 5 cm from the contact point. what is the magnitude and direction of the force exerted by the hammer claws on the nail
