1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The 6.9 N weight is in equilibrium under the influence of the three forces acting on it. The F force acts from above on the left at an angle of α with the horizontal. The 5.1 N force acts from above on the right at an angle of 51◦ with the horizontal. The force 6.9 N acts straight down. What is the magnitude of the force F? Answer in units of N. 2. Relevant equations ΣF=0 3. The attempt at a solution I broke the forces up into x and y components so: ΣFy=6.9-5.1sin51°+Fsinα and ΣFx=5.1cos51°-Fcosα What do I do now?
