(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Just have to determine the angle between the force and the line "OC".

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\vec{P}[/tex] [tex]\bullet[/tex] [tex]\vec{Q}=PQcos(\alpha)[/tex] ??

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using different triangles to find the angle but couldn't come up with one.

I "moved" the 12X24 box down the x-axis so OC starts from the tail of the vector.

Am I supposed to use F_{xy}some way?

Thanks for your help, I've been working on this for a couple hours now..
