Solution: Three forces act on a mass: a 15 N force along the +x axis, a 10 N force acting 10o above the -x axis, and a 12 N force acting 40o below the +x axis. What is the magnitude of the net force acting on this mass?

Problem

Three forces act on a mass: a 15 N force along the +x axis, a 10 N force acting 10o above the -x axis, and a 12 N force acting 40o below the +x axis. What is the magnitude of the net force acting on this mass?
