Problem: Two horses pull horizontally on ropes attached to a stump. The two forces exttip{vec {F_1}}{F_1_vec} = 1310 N and 2 that they apply to the stump are such that the net (resultant) force exttip{vec{R}}{R_vec} has a magnitude equal to that of 1 and makes an angle of 901 with 1. Find the magnitude of exttip{vec{F}_{ m 2}}{F_2_vec}.Find the direction of exttip{vec{F}_{ m 2}}{F_2_vec} (relative to exttip{vec {F_1}}{F_1_vec}).

Problem Details

Two horses pull horizontally on ropes attached to a stump. The two forces = 1310 N and 2 that they apply to the stump are such that the net (resultant) force has a magnitude equal to that of 1 and makes an angle of 901 with 1. The two horses are pulling horizontally on ropes attached to a stump. The first horse is pulling to the southwest and the second horse is pulling to the east. The resultant force R and the force of the first horse have the same magnitude and make a right angle.
