Four forces act on an object, given by
A = 47.3 N east,
B = 37.3 N north,
C = 78.7 N west,
D = 80.7 N south.
(Assume east and north are directed along the +x-axis and +y-axis,respectively.)
What is the magnitude of the net force (in N) on the object?
What is the direction of the force? (Enter your answer in degrees counterclockwise from the +x-axis.)
° counterclockwise from the +x-axis

Expert Answer

Step 1

(a). Assume east and north are directed along the +x-axis and +y-axis respectively. Then the net force is

Fet 47.3N-78.7N + 37.3 N - 80.7 N =-31.4i- 43.4j

Step 2

Then the magnitude of...
