    One force is pushing an object in a direction 50 degree south of east with a force of 25 Newton. A second force is simultaneously pushing the object in a direction 70 degree north of west with a force of 60 Newton. If the object is to remain stationary, give the direction and magnitude of the third force which must be applied to the object to counterbalance the first two.
