Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i got pretty much all the answer but im not sure about em. like for s, its equal 2.20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0resultant forces is easy using component method, which I think you already have an idea

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is the Fx is equal 0. and the Fy as u see have 2 forces on the same line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you were given a clue that both horizontal components are equal but at the same time opposite that is equal in magnitude but are opposite in directions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0horizontal component is our x component, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we got F2x and F1x which the total is equal zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it is more reasonable to show that they are opposite in direction if we preserved the angle as 140 degrees instead of 40 degrees for our second resultant force

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we just need to show it and calculate it too? cuz i tried to do like that before to solve that problem, but then i changed my mind

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol we can calculate it using component method

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is how can we make sure the resultant is on the y line or not. cuz if its not, then we cant solve it easily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you preserve the angle counterclock wise or use the quadrant as your reference, you still end up with the same answer in the end it is up to you however comfortable you are
