Apologies if I have done something wrong, first time posting on a stack exchange website.
Four forces act perpendicular to the surface of a circular slab (assume mass of slab is 0 and middle of slab is at 0,0,0)(all forces in -y direction)
Force 1 is located at 5,0,0 and has a magnitude of 77.4kN
Force 2 is located at 0,0,5 and has a magnitude of 48.6kN
Force 3 is located at 0,0,-5 and has a magnitude of 24.4kN
Force 4 is located at -5,0,0 and has a magnitude of 97.6kN
What is the coordinates of the resulting force (x,y,z) to two decimal places?
The given answer is (0.49,0,-0.41) and I don't know where I went wrong.
After talking to my lecturer, she said the question was supposed to be determining the z coordinate only, which is why it would say the answer was correct when 0.49 was put first, meaning that the answers I calculated were correct.
