Question

Three forces of magnitudes F1=4.0N, F2=6.0N, and F3=8.0N are applied to a block of mass m=2.0kg, initially at rest, at angles shown on the diagram. (Figure 1)In this problem, you will determine the resultant (net) force by combining the three individual force vectors. All angles should be measured counterclockwise from the positive x axis (i.e., all angles are positive).

 

A.) What is the magnitude of the block's acceleration vector, a⃗ ?

B.) What is the direction of a⃗ ? In other words, what angle does this vector make with respect to the positive x axis?

C.) How far (in meters) will the block move in 5.0 s? Recall that it starts from rest.
