    1. Two students are using ropes to pull on a heavy object, as shown in the diagram below.

    a. Using your knowledge about right triangles, with how much force will the object move? (2 marks)
    < >

    b. Solve for the angle of the object relative to the 500 N force, to the nearest degree. Use your knowledge about right triangles and show your work. (2 marks)

    2. A person walks along a path from Point A to Point B, as shown below.

    a. Draw a vector diagram that includes the resultant vector if the person walked straight from Point A to Point B. (2 marks)
    < >

    b. Determine the direction and the straight -line distance that the person is from point A when she is at point B. (4 marks)

    As the magnitude of the resultant vector is given by the third side of the triangle and the triangle here is a right angled triangle it is given by

    Or N

    b. Solve for the angle of the object relative to the 500 N force, to the nearest degree. Use your knowledge ...
