Question #15860

Add 10N acting left to right, to 10N acting left to right

Expert's answer

When we add forces we work with vectors that have magnitude and

direction.

While adding vectors we add them by components (e.g., x-components

and y-components separately).

In this particular case both forces have the

same direction, so the resulting force will be

10H + 10H = 20H

acting left

to right.
