Finding component weight and angle measurements
Now I know you can't outright give me the answer to this question but some useful tips would be appreciated as this is my first time taking physics. Thank you.
A boulder of weight w rests on a hillside that rises at a constant angle x above the horizontal. Its weight is a force on the boulder that has direction vertically downward. In terms of w and x , what is the component of the weight of the boulder in the direction parallel to the surface of the hill? What is the component of the weight in the direction perpendicular to the surface of the hill? Express your answers in terms of w and x.
