Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see. So then after getting the required lengths. we use the formula A = Axi + Ayj + Azk?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2where x,y,z are the compnents of the unit vector it has to be a unit vector in the direction u want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so that the magnitude of (k*unitvector) = k where k is 500 in this case,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1After u get the start and end points of the vector, use V =<(x2x1) , (y2y1), (z2z1)> The unit vector length 1 in the direction of V is , the V over its magnitude Then multiply that by the force at A, to get the force vector, as dan did
