Question #15905 Physics 2D Motion Vector Operations 1 Answer Sunayan S · Rachel Jul 4, 2017 The resultant force will be #6000sqrt3N#. Explanation: Suppose, #vec (AB)# and# vec (AC )#are the two boats and# vec( AD)# is the direction of ship. We know the formula of resultant is #AD=sqrt(AC^2+CD^2+2×AB×CD×cos 60# #AD=sqrt(2(6000)^2+2×6000×6000×(1/2)# #AD=sqrt(3×6000^2)# #AD=6000sqrt3# final answer Answer link Related questions What are vectors used for?
