Problem 10

Canal Barge Problem: In the past, it was common to pull a barge with tow ropes on opposite sides of a canal (Figure 6-7f). Assume that one person exerts a force of 50 lb at an angle of 20 with the direction of the canal. The other person pulls at an angle of 15 to the canal with just enough force so that the resultant vector is directly along the canal. Find the force, in pounds, with which the second person must pull and the magnitude of the resultant force vector. Figure 6-7f
