Hello, I'm new here. Basically I have this practice excercise for my exam.: http://capa.hep.uprm.edu/msuphysicslib/Graphics/Gtype06/prob09_xph183f6pic2.gif My general problem is that I'm bad with separating forces into components, and I assume this excercise deals with that. Can someone plz point me in the right direction to solving this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
