Use the measured angles to resolve each of the forces exerted by the strings into a z-component(Fz) and a horizontal component(FH).

Fz = F cos Theta

FH = F cos Theta

Given angles and forces:

30 deg. 270 N

135 deg. 170 N

240 deg. 260 N

I am a little confused about the problem and what exactly its asking for.

I will just show you my attempt for 30 deg. and see if it is the correct approach.

angle 30 deg

force 270 N

Fz = F cos Theta = 135

FH = F cos Theta = 234

Is this what they mean by a Z component and horizontal?
