Physics question #2?
A gust of wind blows an apple from a tree.
As the apple falls, the force of gravity on the apple is 9.16 N downward, and the force of
the wind on the apple is 1.42 N to the right.
What is the magnitude of the net external
force on the apple?
Answer in units of N.

As gravity and the wind are presumably acting at 90° to each other.
F = √(9.16² + 1.42²)
F = 9.2694...
F = 9.27 N
I hope this helps.
