A given force F→ is located in the yz-plane. It has a magnitude of 18N and is directed at a 30.0° angle clockwise from the positive y-axis.
(a) Describe F→ using polar notation.
(b) Describe F→ using its y- and z-components.
(c) Describe F→ using cartesian notation.
I have a hard time figuring out this question
For a) I think it's 18m/s[300degrees]
b) Fy= 15.6 degree, Fz= 9 degrees
c) No clue.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
shouldn't the angle be 330deg?
on the force magnitudes, the unit is Newtons
f=fx i + fy j + fz k
fx=0, fy, fz as above
Sorry there was a typo in the question, you're right.
Answer this Question
Two forces act on an object. The first force has a magnitude of 17.0 N and is oriented 68.0° counter-clockwise from the x axis, while the 2nd force has x- and y-components (-19.0 N, 16.5 N). Express the magnitude and direction of the net force.
