1. Homework Statement

Replace the force for by the equivalent of two forces paralel at the dot and the other perpendicular to the beam.

The force P is 2000 N

Determine the forces!


2. Homework Equations

Fx= P*cos(x) =
Fy= P*sin(x) =

3. The Attempt at a Solution

Fx= 2000 N* cos(75)= 0.517 kN
Fy= 2000 N* sin(75) = 1.93 kN


Am I on the right track? It's just the angle that i'm not sure about.

Yes. This looks better. I cant believe i didn't think to check on what Pythagoras thought about my solution.

Thank you!
