The solution calculates Resultant Force.

##### Solution Preview

Let East direction be the positive x axis and North the positive y axis

Component is the horizontal (x) direction = (Magnitude) x (Cos phi )

Component is the vertical (y) direction = (Magnitude) x (Sin phi )

a) HORSE A EXERTS A FORCE OF 350 N AT AN ANGLE OF 48 DEGREES N OF EAST

Magnitude = 350 N

phi = 48 degrees

x ...
