A force F → 1 , of magnitude 6.00 units acts on an object at the origin in a direction θ = 30.0° above the positive x-axis (Fig. P1.58). A second force F → 2 of magnitude 5.00 units acts on the object in the direction of the positive y-axis. Find graphically the magnitude and direction of the resultant force F → 1 + F → 2 . Figure P1.58

To determine
The magnitude and direction of the resultant force (F1+F2) .

Explanation

Given Info: The force (F1) is having magnitude of 6units and directed along 30° above the positive x-axis.

Explanation:

The force (F2) is having magnitude of 5units and directed along the positive y-axis.

The graphical representation of the two forces and the resultant force vector is,

The second force vector is start from the head of the first vector
