Physics Review Question Part III

Unit: Mechanics
Year: 1997 Question#: 117

Base your answers to questions 116 through 118 on the information and vector diagram below.

A 20.-newton force due north and a 40.-newton force due east act concurrently on a 10.-kilogram object, located at point P.

117. On the vector diagram on your answer paper, use a ruler and protractor to construct the vector that represents the resultant force. [1 point]

Show the solution

Step 1 You must take your straght edge (ruler / protractor) and recreate these vectors so that they line up head to tail. You can change their position but not their size or direction.

 Step 1 Step 2

Step 2 Draw the resultant vector (in red) from the tail of the first to the head of the last. Don't forget to put arrowheads on your vector! (forget them and you get no credit).
