Two tugboats are pulling a disabled speedboat into port with forces of 1240 pounds and 1480 pounds. The angle between these forces is 28.2 degrees. Find the direction and magnitude of the equilibrant.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 4:53 pm ad1c9bdddf
Fresultant = sqrt(F1^2 + F2^2 + 2*F1*F2*cos(Q))
F1 = 1240 pounds
F2 = 1480 pounds
Q = 28.2 degree
Fresultant = = sqrt(1240^2 + 1480^2 + ...
The direction and magnitude of an equilibrant is calculated.
