## Carolinaaa 2 years ago If the horizontal component of net force is 68 newtons and the angle made by the net force with the horizontal is 19.2°, what is the value of the net force?

For these types of problems it helps to draw them like I did below. For this one, the net force will be the length of the hypotenuse. |dw:1359861988614:dw|

what is the equation ?

At this point it's just a trig problem. If you're taking physics you should be able to figure this one out! Here's a hint:$cos(\theta)=\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$
