Question

Let us suppose the first force to be ( 3 x ) and the other force to be ( 5 x )
Now resultant can be given by sqrt ( left[a^{star} a+b^{star} b+right. ) 2abcos(angle between a and b) so in this case the resutant becomes ( =operatorname{sqrt}left[9 x^{*} x+right. ) ( left.25 x^{star} x+15 x^{star} xright]=35 ) N it is given
hence, ( 7 x=35 )
hence ( x=5 )
so the values of the forces are ( 15 mathrm{N} ) and ( 25 mathrm{N} )

# The magnitude of two forces is in the ratio 3: 5 and the angle between their direction is 60°. If their resultant force is 35N then their magnitude will be - (A) 12 N, 20 N (B) 15 N, 25 N (C) 18 N, 30 N (D) 21 N, 28 N
