If theeres and atom at x,y,z = 0, and one located at x,y,z, = 1/2 and we pull second atom from its posistion with a force F in any one of the x,y,z directions, what are the components of the force in the x,y and z directions?

I thought that if you pulled it in any of the directiosn, each coponent would be equal and add to give F. So, 1/3 of the force would be in each of the x,y,z directions no matter if you add a force F in x,y, or z.

I have trouble picturing whats happening in 3D.
