Two forces, F⃗ 1 and F⃗ 2, act at a point, as shown in the picture. (Figure 1) F⃗ 1 has a magnitude of 8.20N and is directed at an angle of α = 55.0∘ above the negative x axis in the second quadrant. F⃗ 2 has a magnitude of 6.40N and is directed at an angle of β = 53.4∘ below the negative x axis in the third quadrant.

  1. F1 = 8.2N[125o]
    F2 = 6.40N[233.4o]

    A. Fx = 8.2*cos125 + 6.40*cos233.4 =
    -8.519 N.

    B. Fy = 8.2*sin125 + 6.40*sin233.4 =
    1.579 N.

    C. F^2 = -8.519^2 + 1.579^2 = 75.07
    F = 8.66 N.

    D. Tan Ar=Fy/Fx = 1.579/-8.519=-0.18535
    Ar = -10.5o = Reference angle.

    A = -10.5 + 180 = 169.5o = 10.5o Above
    the negative x axis.
