a crate weighing 562 newtons is resting on an inclined plane 30 degress above the horizontal. Find the components of the weight forces that are parallel and perpendicular to the plane?

  • physics -

    Wc = mg = 562 N. = Weight of crate.

    Fc = 562 N. @30 Deg. = Force of crate.
    Fp = 562*sin30 = 281 N. = Force parallel to plane.
    Fv = 562*cos30 = 487 N. = Force perpendicular to plane.

  • physics -

    270-30=240
