1. Two forces Fu and F; are applied to s circular pate as shown.

The resultant R of the two forces has a magnitude of 900 N, and the angle between the time of action of the resultant and the x-axis is 30. Using law of sines & law of cosines (parallelogram law), determine the magnitudes of forces F u

and Fe, _.-
