Estimate 416×9 then find the product
resultant force will act on 65° n of w.
as given in the question one bulldozer exerts force of 1250 pounds in western direction and 2650 pounds in northern direction and we have to find angle a which is an angle between 1250 pounds of force and resultant force f.
therefore tan a= force on north direction/ force on west direction = 2650/1250 = 2.12
a = 64.75
a = 65° north of west.
notice, the denominator for each fraction is the same, thus the lcd is just 3.
i was wrong i didnt pay attion to the y axis
