well i got pretty much all the answer but im not sure about em. like for s, its equal 2.20

- anonymous

show us

- anonymous

for the resultant of 2 forces is equal 15.01 N

- anonymous

show us how you got that

- anonymous

gimme a sec

resultant forces is easy using component method, which I think you already have an idea

- anonymous

the problem is the Fx is equal 0. and the Fy as u see have 2 forces on the same line

- anonymous

which idk to combine em or what

- anonymous

you 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

- anonymous

horizontal component is our x component, right?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

so we got F2x and F1x which the total is equal zero

- anonymous

I 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

- anonymous

oh that is fine with resultant

so 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

lol we can calculate it using component method

- anonymous

well yeah

- anonymous

the 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

if you preserve the angle counter-clock 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

- anonymous

thank you so much :)
