An illustration shows an overhead view of a car as it approaches a fork in the road. The car is oriented such that it is directed toward the top of the illustration. A force F1 extends from the nose of the car and points along the left-side forked road at an angle of 10° measured counterclockwise from the car's initial direction. A force F2 extends from the nose of the car and points along the right-side forked road at an angle of 30° measured clockwise from the car's initial direction.   Two forces are applied to a car in an effort to move it, as shown in the figure below. (Let  F1 = 440 N  and  F2 = 366 N.  Assume up and to the right are in the positive directions.)   (a) What is the resultant vector of these two forces?   (b) If the car has a mass of 3,000 kg, what acceleration does it have? Ignore friction.

Question
An illustration shows an overhead view of a car as it approaches a fork in the road. The car is oriented such that it is directed toward the top of the illustration. A force F1 extends from the nose of the car and points along the left-side forked road at an angle of 10° measured counterclockwise from the car's initial direction. A force F2 extends from the nose of the car and points along the right-side forked road at an angle of 30° measured clockwise from the car's initial direction.
 
Two forces are applied to a car in an effort to move it, as shown in the figure below. (Let 
F1 = 440 N
 and 
F2 = 366 N.
 Assume up and to the right are in the positive directions.)
 
(a) What is the resultant vector of these two forces?
 
(b) If the car has a mass of 3,000 kg, what acceleration does it have? Ignore friction.
