A block of wood is pulled along a Horizontal table by a force of 33 N inclined at 30 degrees above the Horizontal.Find the vertical and horizontal components of the force.
Horizontal component: 33 cos30 = 28.58 N
Vertical component: 33 sin 30 = 16.50 N
This comes from the basic definition of a vector component.
