The square of the hypotenuse. Pythagorean theorem. It’s 25 therefore 5 (I suck at math, just a guess)

- lossofconsciousness said: think about it by placing each force vector ‘tip to tail’ so you end up with two sides of a right triangle. the resultant force vector (Fnet) is the magnitude (length) from the tail of the first to the tip of the second (a^2+b^2=c^2 here)
- im-the-real-ginger-bitch said: It would only be 5 if the 3 was a 1 and it was going in the same direction as the 4. Das all I got.
- misunderstood-again said: Make a triangle Pythagorean theorem. a^2 + b^2 = c^2
- asslemon said: You have to kinda find a single force inbetween the two forces, that does the same job as the horizontal 3N force and the vertical 4N force. You do this by sqrt(3^2+4^2) which equals 5. It’s kinda like finding the hypotenuse (Pythagoras)
- cathexistential said: Vectors are added tail to tip and create a 3x4x5 triangle, net force is 5
- otakulibrary said: You have to use the Pythagorean theorem. Force comes from two different axes so do pythag and it’s 5

- rumbly--in--my--tumbly said: Pythagorean theorem. a=4 b=3 c= x (netforce) Plug into: a^2+b^2=c^2 4^2+b^2=x^2 16+9=x^2 25=x^2 √25=√x^2 5=x
- yuorwelcom said: the net force of two vectors at a right angle is the hypotenuse of the invisible triangle
- officialboner said: Pythaogrean theorem: join the tips of the arrows with a straight line to make a right angled triangle, then sqrt(3squared plus 4squared). also 3 4 5 is a pythagorean triple so its really fast to work out, another is 5 12 13. hope this helped!
