Determine the x and y components of F_1 and F_2.
Show me the final answers↓
We will start with force F_1.
(Remember sine is opposite over hypotenuse)
(Remember cosine is adjacent over hypotenuse)
Now, we will focus on force F_2. As before, we can write use trigonometry to solve for the components.
(Notice how our force is negative. This is because the x-component of force F_2 is going towards the negative x-axis.)
