iv calculated the cartesian components of F1 and F2
F1 = 3i+6j
F2 = i 2j
iv also calculated the cartesian component of the total force F1+F2 = (3i+6j)+(i-2j) = 4i +4j
however the part im struggling on is that now the particle is of mass 1kg and is initially at rest, i have to use newtons 2nd law to write down an equation of motion and find the position of the particle after 1second.
so far iv tried:
F=ma
F1+F2= 1a
therefore a = 4i+4j but then i dont know how to find the new posistion ...can anyonehelp thankz
