Three men are pulling on ropes attached to a tree the ﬁrst man exerts a force of 6.0 N north, the second a force of 35 N east, and the third 40 N to south. What is the magnitude of the resultant force on the tree?
First we can find the resultant force of the men pulling in the north and south directions:
Now we can find the resultant of this force and the man pulling east.
Taking N as zero degrees this is on a bearing of
