The net force exerted by a bat’s wing when it flies can be as large as 7.90 N, assuming that the bat has a mass of 60.0 g. Assume that two different muscles pull the bat’s wing forward and downward, exerting a net force of 7.90 N. If the forces exerted by the muscles are at right angles to each other and the muscle that pulls the bat’s wing downward exerts a force of 1.30 N, what is the magnitude of the force exerted by the other muscle? Draw a free-body diagram showing the forces acting on the bat’s wing.
