Lesson: Resultant Motion and Force High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to show that motion in directions that are at right angles to each other can be represented by motion in one direction.

A length of road stretches north for 10 km from the edge of a town to where it intersects an eastward road. A car is broken down on the eastward road, and the displacement of the edge of the town from the car has a magnitude of 24 km. How far east of the intersection is the car, to the nearest kilometer?
Point is located 8 m horizontally from the base of the wall of a house, and point is located 6 m vertically above the base of the wall, as shown in the diagram. What is the magnitude of the displacement from point to point ?
Two ropes tied around a heavy stone are pulled with the magnitudes and at the angles shown in the diagram. The 90 N force acts at an angle above the horizontal.
What is the magnitude of the net horizontal force acting on the stone due to the pull from the ropes? Answer to the nearest newton.
What is the magnitude of the net vertical force acting on the stone due to the pull from the ropes? Answer to the nearest newton.
