Homework Help: 3-D Vector Statics

  1. Sep 19, 2006 #1
    I need to find the Forve Vector (30N) as a Cartesian vector.

    Given the information given, I believe that the angles of the Triangle are: 90, 32.37, and 57.63. This gives the projected vector in the x, y plane as 16.1 N.

    The answer should be : - 13.2i - 17.7j + 20.3k.
