##### Solution Summary

Finds the 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) 70 LBS AT AN ANGLE 90 DEGREES N OF WEST

90 degrees N of West is also 90 degrees from the positive x direction

Magnitude = 70 ...
