Physics(quick Check)

i am not sure if i am correct.

A 650-N force acts in a northwesterly direction. A second 650-N force must be exerted in what direction so that the resultant of the two forces points westward?

A: southeasterly

It is from the southeasterly direction rite beacuse it forces the force to point towards the west.

  1. Sorry, a South-Easterly force of 650 N will annul the North-Westerly force of 650 N completely. The resultant is zero.

    For the resultant of the two forces to act westwards, their north-south components must be equal and opposite, and the west component must add to each other. Can you give another try?

  2. Southwesterly? beacuse they equal one another?

  3. Yes, the north-south components cancel each other, and the west-component add to each other.
