How to find the magnitude and direction of the forces acting on an moving object?

Would be really appreciated for the helps, I did double-award science for gcses, and now I find physics quite hard and I feels like I lost the bridges connecting gcse physics to a-level physics. Thanks so much in advance.

OMG finally someone else who finds physics hard I did double award igcse got an A its hard because it just is I feel so dumb in my class I do maths and find it easy and everyone keeps saying I should find physics easy like if you don't do the subject shut up.Justin craig revision course really helps and youtube vids.I might be able to help but what is the question

Hey jade if this is for vectors I guess you just treat it like maths so you either use pythagros or SOH CAH TOA hope this helps don't forget your arrows. I find physics impossible idk why im doing it

SAME I'm good at maths but some parts of physics aren't relatable to maths at. all. Physics was alright to me at gcse but now I literally don't understand it at all.... Strugggling... Thanks for telling me about the revision course! What subjects are you doing?

Vectors is maths.. its not that hard. If you know AB and BC, the resultant is AC. You can use basic trig to work out the angles and magnitude.

You are asking a general question.

The answer to your question depends on how the forces act on the moving object.

The above video would explain how to add vector components and find the resultant vector. As force is a vector quantity, the rule of adding force components will follow.

haha thanks yeah we'll be covering the two years maths course in the first year and then do further maths stuff in the second year so if I droped at the end of year 12, Maths would be so much easier in year 13
