Hi again. Can somebody guide me in find the direction angles of the vector force given below?
You would use trigonometry to break up the force into it's components in the x,y and z direction, then just solve for the missing angle using those functions
I'm having difficulty in breaking up the force into its x component.
Are you trying to solve for the angle in the x direction?
The x, y, z direction angles.
I'm guessing this force doesn't have x conponent.
Fy=-500cos45 and Fz=-500cos60
Are those components correct?
Separate names with a comma.
