Calculate the horizontal and vertical components of the forces, giving your answers to 1 decimal
place
Force

Horizontal Component

Vertical Component

8N

13 N

A force of 11 N at an angle of 650 to the


positive x- axis

A force of 200 N at an angle of 205 to


the positive axis

2.

A child pushes a toy car of mass 2kg across the floor with a force of 5N at an angle of 55. Find the
acceleration. What is the normal contact force?

3.

A suitcase of mass 15kg is dragged along the floor at a constant speed of 1.2m/s by means of a rope at
30 to the horizontal. The tension from the rope is 50N. Calculate the force resisting the motion and
the normal reaction.

4.

A goat of mass 4kg has an acceleration of a when being dragged around a field by a crazed llama by a
rope with force 35.4 N at an angle of 45. The field is perfectly horizontal. Find the normal reaction
and the acceleration of the goat.

5.

A glider is traveling at a velocity of 20.0 ms-1 at an angle of 150 below the horizontal.
Find the horizontal and vertical components of the gliders velocity.
