#### Description

This video explains how to create the resultant using the analytical method. This is done by force distribution in the horizontal or vertical direction.
Afterwards, the respective directions will be added together for the resultant.
With the Pythagorean Theorem, an overall resultant can be determined from the vertical and horizontal resultant.
This second solution can be used to check the result from the first video with the parallelogram of forces.
We will look at wind suction on a house again as our example.
