A particle is acted upon by a four forces simultaneously, 30N due east 20N due north 15N due west 40N due south find the resultant force of the particle?

A particle is acted upon a four forces are

F1 = 30N
F2 = 20N
F3 = 15N
F4 = 40N


We must determine the magnitude of the particle’s consequent force.

Using the resulting force formula 

Put the value into the formula

R = 30i + 20J – 15i -40j
R = 15i – 20J
R = Square root[(15)^2 + (20)^2]R = 25N

Hence, The magnitude of resultant force of the particle is 25 N.
