Experiment 2Objective1. Obtain the resultant of a number of forces acting on a body. 2. Obtain the resultant of the same forces by drawing a vector diagram to scale to find its magnitude and direction.3. Determine of the resultant using the analytical method, including the law of cosine for the magnitude and the
