The rope BC exerts an 800 N force F on the bar

AB at B. Determine the vector components of F

parallel to the bar.

2. Relevant equations

I already know how to complete dot product (e.g. a.b), cross product (e.g. axb) and understand the basic principles of these ideas but don't know how to use these within the question asked to get the answer.

3. The attempt at a solution

I have already been given the solution to the question but all my workings that I have done so far have not produced the correct answer. The answer is Ans: -396i –476j – 79k N
