At a certain station the surface wind has a speed of 10 m/s and is directed across the isobars from
high to low pressure at an angle of α=20°. Assuming the flow is balanced (no acceleration), calculate
the magnitude of the horizontal pressure gradient force vector and the magnitude of the frictional
force vector. Assume that the station is located at 40°N. Start by sketching all forces. Provide a
detailed explanation of your approach.
