Mechanics Homework | 2-1 014 - Solving for force with given resultant | Name_______________ |

**Problem 2-1** From Fig. P-014, P is directed at an angle α from x-axis and the 200 N force is acting at a slope of 5 vertical to 12 horizontal.

- Find P and α if the resultant is 500 N to the right along the x-axis.
- Find P and α if the resultant is 500 N upward to the right with a slope of 3 horizontal to 4 vertical.
- Find P and α if the resultant is zero.
