A force F1 of magnitude 6.50 units acts on an object at the origin in a direction θ = 44.0° above the positive x-axis. (See the figure below.) A second force F2 of magnitude 5.00 units acts on the object in the direction of the positive y-axis. Find graphically the magnitude and direction of the resultant force F1 + F2.
