Expert Answer

Step 1

To find

  1. The resultant of given force system with parallelogram and triangle law of forces.
  2. The magnitude and direction of resultant of the given force system using coordinate system.

We have been given the following information:

Step 2

For part A.

The resultant of the given force system using the parallelogram law of forces.

Let’s first take forces AQ and AP.

Complete the parallelogram with diagonal representing the resultant of these two forces.

The following diagram would explain it better
