Nathaniel pulls a sled along level ground with a force of 30 newtons on the rope attached to the sled. If the rope makes an angle of 20 degrees with the ground when it is pulled taught, find the horizontal and vertical components of the force. Round to the nearest tenth.

Another one of those word problems. Thanks for all of your help!

    Even easier.

    Did you make a diagram?

    the 30 N would be the hypotenuse, and you are finding the opposite side (vertical) and the adjacent side (horizontal)
