Questions:

1. The following forces act on an object resting on a level, frictionless surface: 10 N to the north, 20 N to the east, 10 N at an angle 40° south of east, and 20 N at an angle 50° west of south. Find the magnitude and direction of the resultant force acting on the object.
2. Find the magnitude and direction of the resultant of a 40-N force that acts at an angle of 63° clockwise from the +y-axis, a 15-N force that acts at an angle of 120° clockwise from the +y-axis, and a 30-N force that acts at an angle of 310° clockwise from the +y-axis.
3. The following horizontal forces act on an object: A has a magnitude of 6.0 lb and is in the +y-direction; B has a magnitude of 10.0 lb and is in the -x-direction; C has a magnitude of 8.0 lb and is at an angle of 45° clockwise from the +x-direction. Find the magnitude and direction of A + BC.
4. The vector A has a magnitude of 10 cm and points 37° clockwise from the +y-direction. The vector B has a magnitude of 10 cm and points 37° clockwise from the +x-direction. Find the magnitude and direction of A + B, A – B, and B – A.
5. George walks 4.0 km in one direction and 2.0 km in another direction to end up 5.0 km from where he started. What is the angle between the two directions?
