014 Solving for force with given resultant

Problem 014
Forces in 1st and 4th quadrantsFrom 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.

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