If two forces act together on an object, their effect may  be described as the action of one force.
EXAMPLE Two forces of magnitude 5N and 6N act on a particle. They  act at right angles. Find the magnitude and direction of their  resultant.

Unformatted text preview: i + 4 j ) N, where i and j are unit vectors due east and due north respectively, act on a particle. Find the magnitude and direction of the resulting force. EXAMPLE Forces P , Q and R act on a particle at O in the plane of the coordinate axes Ox , Oy , making angles p , q , r respectively with Ox in the first quadrant. P = 4 N, Q = 3 N, R = 6 N, p = 30°, q = 45°, r = 60°...

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
