## Homework Statement

By finding angles, determine the component of the force acting at C which is perpendicular to the line CP. Show that the resulting moment agrees with the calculation in part (ii), if you were to look at that force alone.

Force at C = 200Ni + 250Nj (calculated to be at an angle 75.96 angle from x axis)

Force C magnitude = 320.156N

## Homework Equations

Simple cos for x component and sin for y component, etc.

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is part c of a problem. I have calculated that the line perpendicular to CP is 87.138 degrees off the x axis. So how do I find the component acting at that angle?

I feel like this is really easy and I'm just overthinking things.

I don't want the answer to the problem which is why I left out where the origin for the moment will be. I just want to know how to find this force.
