Homework Help: Engineering

Posted by Claire on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 11:46am.

The boat is to be pulled onto the shore using two ropes. If the resultant force is to be 400N, directed along the keel, determine the magnitudes of forces T and P acting in each rope and the angle theta of P so that the magnitude of P is a minimum. T acts at 30 degrees from the keel.


How can I determine the value of P if it is a minimum? Do minimum forces make a specified angle with each other?
