## Homework Statement

(i) Find the resultant force acting at point D and write it in Cartesian form. (Note that CD is parallel to the y-axis, the 40N force acts parallel to the z-axis and the 30N force is parallel to the x-axis.)

(ii) Find the magnitude of the projected component of the resultant force acting along the line AD.

Image of problem is attached.

## Homework Equations

(i) Unsure about calculating resultant force

(ii) Find Unit vector of UAD and find the dot product of UAD and FR from (i)

## The Attempt at a Solution

(i) Unsure if resultant force at point D is simply F1= (-30i) and F2= (-40k) so FR= (-30i - 40k) (Magnitude 50N) ?

(ii) UAD = (-0.2/0.245)i + (-0.1/0.245)j + (0.1/0.245)k

Then F.UAD = (Fi)(-0.2/0.245) + (Fj)(-0.1/0.245) + (Fk)(0.1/0.245)

Thanks for your help,

Tim
