Three vectors

The three forces whose amplitudes are in ratio 9:10:17 act in the plane at one point to balance. Determine the angles of each two forces.

Correct answer:

A =  53.1301 °
B =  154.9424 °
C =  151.9275 °

Step-by-step explanation:

F1=9 F2=10 F3=17 u1=180πarccos((F22+F32F12)/(2 F2 F3))=180πarccos((102+17292)/(2 10 17))25.0576 u2=180πarccos((F12+F32F22)/(2 F1 F3))=180πarccos((92+172102)/(2 9 17))28.0725 A=u1+u2=25.0576+28.0725=53.1301=53748"
