Chapter 1, Problem 1.34P, The resultant of the two forces has a magnitude of 800 lb. Determine the direction of the resultant

To determine

The direction of resultant vector, and magnitude of vector P.

Explanation of Solution

  

The magnitude of resultant vector is 800 lb.

Calculation:

The force triangle for given information,

  

Consider triangle ABC,

  B=180°55° =125°

Apply law of sines,

  500sinC=800sinBsinC=500800sinB=500800sin125° =0
