Beth, a construction worker, attempts to pull
a stake out of the ground by pulling on a rope
that is attached to the stake. The rope makes
an angle of 44.8
◦ with the horizontal.
If Beth exerts a force of 146.8 N on the
rope, what is the magnitude of the upward
component of the force acting on the stake?

1. Drawing a triangle to show the forces would help make this question a lot easier

Let x be the upward component

sin(44.8)=x/146.8
x = 146.8 x sin(44.8)
