A model for the suspension of a vehicle is shown where the spring has stiffness k = 178 N.mm and an unstretched length of 347 mm.
Here is the picture: http://i.imgur.com/1dTVs12.jpg
Part a asked to determine the value of P and the force supported by member AB so that the suspension was in equilibrium, and I got that right.
However part b asks "If P = 0, determine the x and y coordinates of point A, namely xA and yA."
Law of sines
Law of cosines
The Attempt at a Solution
I used the law of cosines to find all the angles
A = 15.737 degrees
B = 138.128 degrees
C = 26.135 degrees
I don't know where to go from here to find the coordinates, I feel like this is probably really easy but I'm over thinking it.
Thank you so much for your help!
