Question details

Question 11

  1. Similar to the “Magnitude Problem”, imagine two forces originate from the same point (call it point “O” for the origin), and both lie in Quadrant 1. One force has a magnitude of 600 lbs and has an angle, theta, of 0 degrees from the X axis (thus it is oriented along the X axis). The other force has a magnitude of 800 lbs and has an angle, theta, of 90 degrees from the X axis (thus it is oriented along the Y axis!). What is the angle of the resultant force to the X -axis in this example?

    45 degrees

    0 degrees

    90 degrees

    30 degrees

    53.13 degrees

    31.65 degrees

    62.65 degrees
