Lesson Worksheet: Resultant of Coplanar Forces Mathematics
In this worksheet, we will practice finding the resultant of a group of forces acting on a point.
is an equilateral triangle, where is the point of intersection of its medians. Three forces of magnitudes 48, 26, and 42 newtons are acting at in the directions of , , and . Determine the magnitude of the resultant and its angle of inclination with the positive direction of the -axis rounded to the nearest minute.
The diagram shows a regular hexagon, , whose diagonals intersect at the point . The 6 forces shown acting at are measured in newtons. Find the magnitude of their resultant and , the angle between their resultant and the positive -axis. Round your value of to the nearest minute if necessary.
