Problem

Workmen are trying to free an SUV stuck in the mud. To extricate the vehicle, they use three horizontal ropes, producing the force vectors shown in the figure.The vehicle is shown in the center of the xy plane with the three forces acting on it. The force of 985 newtons is located in the first quadrant and makes an angle of 31 degrees with the positive x-axis. The force of 788 newtons is located in the second quadrant and makes an angle of 32 with the positive y-axis. The force of 411 newtons is located in the third quadrant and makes an angle of 53 degrees with the negative x-axis.

Find the y components of each of the three pulls.

Use the components to find the magnitude of the resultant of the three pulls.

Find the x components of each of the three pulls.

Use the components to find the direction of the resultant of the three pulls.
