Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, but i need to find w=weight of obejct and magnitude of F sub 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe a system should solve this, with the understanding f sub 1 + F sub 2=w, cant seem too put it together though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how about ratio and proportion to find the value of the magnitude of F sub 1dw:1328416025545:dw you can find the value of F sub 1. and since you said that F sub 1 + F sub 2=w, plug the values to find weight. . but i'm not sure. .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0break it into components. Vector(F1)+vector(f2)+vector(w)=0. Vector f1=magf1<cos(t1),Sin(t1)> Vector f2=magf2<cos(t2),sin(t2)> X components add to zero magf1cos(43)+110cos(38)=0 Solve for magf1 and plug into: y components: magf1sin(43)+110sin(38)=w

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do the x components add to zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0instantaneously/or not hah is not in motion. There is no movement in the x direction. Weight is a downward vector so it has no x component. Thus F1 and F2's x components add to zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ddw:1328417056124:dw You have these three vectors to worry about. Adding the x components gives you zero even if you include the weight vector because as you can see in the picture weight has a xcomponent of zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they add to zero because there is no movement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is also no movement in the y direction but weight has a y component.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those indicate the direction of the vectors. Multiplying them by the magnitude will give you your components.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice how I put magf1<x,y> for vector f1. That vector has a negative x component.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So in my example, based on how you did it, my magnitude for f1 would be given by:dw:1328417583344:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the weight right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay yeah you should be getting 118.52.. for f1
