The question states: 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?
