Force R that acts on point O, is the combined force of two forces: Q that's applied horizontally, and F, whose line of action is along OB. (I think it ought to be an arrow there instead of a line)... Calculate Q and F, if R is 550 [N]
The Attempt at a Solution
Well, as you can see, R - the combined vector, is not pointing where it should! That doesn't make sense.
In addition, according to the answers
Q = 568.58 [N]
F = 197.47 [N]
How can Q be greater than the combined vector if they're not opposite to each other?
