Hey! I have been trying to solve this problem without success. Any help will be appreciated 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Resolve the 170 N force into three parts: one of which is parallel to OQ, another parallel to OP, and the third parallel to the y axis. (See the graph) Are these the components of F in these directions? Pay attention to the last question. the answer is "No". I have already found the components of the force in Fx, Fy and Fz directions. So the "parts" to be found are different from the components. 2. Relevant equations Trigonometric equations What I used to find the Fx, Fy and Fz components: [itex]Fz = F * sinγ[/itex] [itex]Fy = F * cosγ * sinβ[/itex] [itex]Fx = F * cosγ * cosβ[/itex] 3. The attempt at a solution I found the Fx, Fy and Fz components using the equations above: they are 80, 120 and 90, respectively. I also calculated the uni vector of F and of OQ (see attachment). I have also calculated the sides of several right triangles. Now my problem is that I don't have an idea how to connect all the dots and complete the solution. Thank you in advance!
