1. a force of 30n with a direction of 35 degrees northwest acts on point p. Find:
a) the northward component on the force
b) the westward component of the force

Please show work. Thanks!

    "35 degrees northwest" is not a direction. Do you mean 35 degrees north of west?

  • physics -

    plzzzzzz if u know try my question plzzzzzzz.............

  • physics -

    again, you have to express directions in standard form. 35 degrees northwest is not a standard direction. Is it 35 degrees North of west, or 35 degrees west of North?

  • physics -

    That is just what my homework says but it probably does mean north of west.
