Three horizontal forces (the only horizontal one) act on a box sitting on a floor. One force (F1) acts due east and has a magnitude of 150 lb. A second force (F2) has an easterly component at 30.0 lb and a southerly component at 40.0 lb. The box remains at rest. Sketch the two known forces on the box. Find the unknown third force in newtons.

  1. The figure shows two forces acting at right angles on an object. They have magnitudes F1 = 6.3 N and F2 = 2.1 N. What third force will cause the object to be in equilibrium (acceleration equals zero)?
