1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I don't understand my textbook. 2. Relevant equations Fh = Fa Cos θ Where Fa is some pulling force applied, in-between horizontal and vertical. Where Fh is force in the horizontal. 3. The attempt at a solution Intuitively, if the angle of the force applied is at 45°, then the force in the horizontal and vertical is the same, and half of Fa. Cos θ for 45° is 0.707. I was expecting 0.5. What am I getting wrong? Thanks.
