Follow it through step by step.Example:Given three forces acting on an object, determine the magnitude and direction ofthe resultant force F ._{R}F = 90 lbf at 391oF = 50 lbf at 1202oF = 125 lbf at 2503oStep 1:First draw x and y coordinate axes on a sheet of paper. Then, draw F , F ,1 2and F from the point of origin. It is not necessary to be totally accurate3in placing the vectors in the drawing. The approximate location in theright quadrant is all that is necessary. Label the drawing as in the model(Figure 26).Step 2:Resolve each force into its rectangular coordinates.
