    Car on a bank problem need help ?!!

    Okay, Noted . Now I’m having some difficulties, so for vertical components , it will be : Fncos(theta) = mg+ Ffsin(theta) And the other equation being : Fnsin(theta) + Ffcos(theta) = mv^2/r Do I isolate Fn and substitute It into the other equation to solve for Ff ? Or do I break down Ff...

    Vectors problem

    Homework Statement I’m working on a problem that requires adding 3 vectors . And while I was following the book, it said to find the angle to divide the y over the x components of the resistant , and showed the angle to be -1.25 but then follow d to change to -51 . How did it change ? The book...
