The answer is 85.38 foot-pounds.

I just need to figure out how to get the answer.

**Damon**, Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 7:32pmFind the angle of the Force F

cos T = 2/sqrt13 = .555

T = 56.3 deg above x axis

or

tan T = 2/3

so T = 56.3

Find the direction of motion from slope of line

tan slope = 1/2

slope angle = 26.6 deg

angle between force and motion = 56.3-26.6 = 29.7 degrees

so

component of force in direction of motion = 30 cos 29.7

= 26.06 pounds

26.06*3 = 78.2 ft lbs

beats me how to get 85.38

It would be much closer if the force vector were direction(3,2)

**Megha**, Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 9:11pmthe vector is actually <2,2>

and the line angle is 64.3
