Resultant Force II

For the resultant force of two perpendicular forces, we need to consider other methods.

In this situation, two non-parallel forces are acting on an object at a right angle to each other.



So with the example above, there is Force a (Sometimes called component a) and Force b (sometimes called component b).

The resultant force is named as F.

The resultant force can be obtained through Phytogras theorem

F^2 = a^2 + b^2

F = Square root of (a^2+b^2)




Example of question:

What is the resultant force if Force a,70N  and Force b, 90N act on an object and both for the forces are perpendicular to each other. What is the direction of the force?

i. Resultant force, Fr = Square root of (70^2 + 90^2)
                                  = 114N

ii. Direction, Tan (theta) = 70 / 90
                                        = 0.7778
                                        = 37.9 degree

So the resultant force is 114N and the direction is 37.9 degree from the original 90N force.

If you have known the basic principle.
The questions can be manipulated but you can still know how to work out the question.

Thanks for the effort of educating young scientist.
However, I think there is a slight adjustment in the formula for the direction of the resultant force of two forces perpendicular to each other

It should be angle α=tan^(-1)⁡〖a/b〗
