A crate is pulled right with a force of 82.0N to the left wtih a force of 115N upward with a force of 565N and downward with a force of 236N

Fine the net external force in the X direction

Find the net external force in the y direction

find the the magnitude and direction of the net external force on the crate

I'm lost

  1. If I read this correctly, the net force to the right X direction is 82-115

    and net upward of 565-236

    Not to get the net magnitude, use Pythagorean theorm. For the angle, use the tangent function.

  3. I think you meant -5.73 round it up call it -6. The annotated teachers version says the angle is 96 degrees.... is there some connection here where 96-6 gives you a right triangle? Maybe my thinking is wrong.
