If we follow the procedure we used before, we add the forces graphically by lining the vectors up tip to tail. We have done this for the three forces from your team. The tail of the 200 N force is lined up with the tip of the 100 N force, and the tail of the 400 N force is lined up with the tip of the 200 N force.

2 to answer these questions. 5). Can you do this if you push against the book only with a horizontal force? How hard must you push against the book to keep it from sliding down the wall? What force opposes the weight of the book and prevents the book from falling? The force of your hand pressing against the book is acting horizontally, so it can't oppose the vertical force of gravity pulling down on the book. The force acting upward on the book is friction between the book and the wall (and possibly between the book and your hand).
