1. ### Determine the components of P in the i, j, and k directions.

There are multiple parts to the question.. I'm only asking about the P vector.
2. ### Determine the components of P in the i, j, and k directions.

Homework Statement As shown, a pole is subjected to three forces: F, P, and T. The force F expressed in Cartesian vector form is F=[5 i+7 j+6 k] N. Force P has magnitude 7.48 N and acts in the direction given by these direction angles: α=143∘, β=57.7∘, and γ=74.5∘ to the x, y, and z axes...
3. ### Finding the magnitude/direction of a resultant vector?

Thanks! You're right that was easier. I got it :)
4. ### Finding the magnitude/direction of a resultant vector?

Alright, sorry! I did 32.6/sin(r)=15/21.4. I got 21.4 from the calculating the angle 1/2(ThetaB-ThetaA)
5. ### Finding the magnitude/direction of a resultant vector?

Homework Statement Four vectors A, B, C, and D are shown (not to scale). Vector A has magnitude 20.0 and acts at an angle of 12.9 degrees with respect to the positive x axis. Vector B has magnitude 15.0 and acts at an angle of 55.7 degrees with respect to the positive x axis. Vector C has...
6. ### Calculating tension on 3 wires/strings

it just clicked. that makes so much more sense than what i was doing. i really appreciate your help! thanks!
7. ### Calculating tension on 3 wires/strings

alright, i made a right triangle with the x and y being the two sides and the given 90 degrees. it didn't get me anywhere earlier since I didn't have any values. I couldn't figure out how to calculate the values of the horizontal and vertical degrees of the strings, so I went with that triangle...
8. ### Calculating tension on 3 wires/strings

Homework Statement "a spider is resting after starting to spin its web. The gravitational force on the spider is 0.172 N on the junction of the three strands of silk. The junction is supported by different tension forces in the two strands above it so that the resultant force on the junction...
