Step 1

Drawing parallelogram for the given system of force – Writing the resultant of two force formula from parallelogram law, Step 2

Plugging the values in resultant formula, Hence, the resultant force is 646.255 N.

Step 3

Calculating its direction by law of sine,

Let the resultant makes and angle of beta from F2 force,

Then from one triangle of a parallelogram, applying sine law,  ...
