Alternatively, the law of cosines may be used as ( 29 , cos 2 2 2 2 2 2 θ F F F F = + from which cos θ = , and the forces are perpendicular. c) For the sum to have 0 magnitude, the forces must be antiparallel, and the angle between them is ° 180 . 4.2: In the new coordinates, the 120N force acts at an angle of ° 53 from the xaxis, or ° 233 from the x +axis, and the 50N force acts at an angle of ° 323 from the x + axis. a) The components of the net force are N 32 323 cos ) N 50 ( 233 cos ) N 120 ( = ° + ° = x R .
