A force vector points at an angle of 51.6 above the +x axis. It has a y component of +494 newtons (N). Find (a) the magnitude and (b) the the x component of the force vector.

  • physics -

    Let the vector be V.

    Vsin(51.6)= 494.

    for the x-component,

    V(x) = Vcos(51.6)

    Try drawing the y,and x axis, the vector V, and a right angled triangle.

  • physics -

    F sin 51.6 = 494
    solve for F
    Fx = F cos 51.6
