7 Express F2 in rectangular components.
10 Since we are not given 2, we cannot compute F2y from the formula
y
F2y = F2 cos 2

But since we know the magnitude F2 = 800 N, we can solve for F2y
from the formula for the magnitude of a vector in terms of its
rectangular components:
2

## 70° 50° (800 N) = (514.2 N)2 + F2y2 + (273.6 N)2

z
and solving for F2y gives

x F2y = ±548.4 N

## Alternatively, we could have solved for 2 by using the identity

8 F2x = (800 N) cos 50° = 514.2 N satsified by the direction angles:

(cos 50 )2 + (cos 2)
2
+ (cos 70 )2 = 1
9 F2z = (800 N) cos 70° = 273.6 N
Solving gives 2 = 46.73° and thus

## This is the same result as before, allowing for round-off error.

## 11 The figure shows that F2y is 12 In vector form, F2 can be written as

7. A 300-lb vertical force is required to pull the pipe out of the ground. Determine
the magnitude and direction angles of the force F2 which, when applied together
with the 150-lb force F1 shown, will produce a 300-lb vertical resultant.

F1 = 150 lb

## 45° 1 Express F1 in rectangular components

60° F1x = F1 cos 1= (150 lb) cos 60° = 75 lb
F2 O
60° F1y = F1 cos 1= (150 lb) cos 60° = 75 lb

3 Express F2 in terms of components, 4 Equating coefficients of i gives

## Use Eqs. 1 and 2 to compute the resultant, Solving gives

R = F1 + F2 F2x = 75 lb (4)

## + {F2xi + F j + F2zk} 300 = 75 lb + F2y

2y
= {75 lb + F2x}i + {75 lb + F }j 0 = 106.1 lb + F2z
2y
Solving gives
+ { 106.1 lb + F2z}k (3)
F2y = 225 lb (5)
Now we use the fact that R is known to be vertical, directed upwards
with a magnitude of 300 lb: F2z = 106.1 lb (6)
R = 0i + 300j + 0k

So Eq. 3 becomes

## 0i + 300j + 0k ={75 lb + F2x}i + {75 lb + F2y}j

+ { 106.1 lb + F2z}k

## = { 38.57i + 30j 34.82k} N + F2k (5) Finally, the magnitude of R is

Because the resultant R lies in the x-y plane, R = (Rx)2 + (Ry)2 + (Rz)2

Rx = 38.57 N

Ry = 30 N
