Hi again,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

we're starting dynamics now and the example problem in the book is very confusing, I don't understand how they got their answer.

tanΘ = opposite/adjacent

= 5.0 N/7.0 N

= 36 degrees

It must be very simple, but I can't get 36 degrees when I try it.

What do I need to input into my calculator to recieve this answer?
