Expert Answer

Step 1

Hi there! Since there are multiple questions we will answer the first question for you. If you need help with the other parts kindly post  them separately.

Step 2

The resultant of the forces can be calculated by using the cosine rule, which is given as,

R
VF12
F22 + 2 F1 x F2 x cose

Step 3

The given values are F1 = 400 N, F2 = 600 N and θ = 60o

Substituting...

R
