# ABCD is a square; forces of 1 kg wt, 6 kg wt and 9 kg wt act in the directions AB, AC and AD respectively; find the magnitude of their resultant correct to the two decimal points.

Assume A be origin, AB be X axis i.e i be the unit vector and AD be y axis i.e  j  be the unit vector
so AC will be $i+j/sqrt{2}$

SO net force will be {1 i +6 ($(i+j)/\sqrt{2}$ )+ 9j  }Xg
{$(1+6/\sqrt{2})i +(1+9/\sqrt{2})j$}X 9.8

So magnitude 51.38 N
