## Resolve the 30-lb force into components along the u and v axes, and determine the magnitude of each of these components.

# Solution:

Draw the components as follows. (Note that the diagrams are not to scale)

Draw the vector components separately as follows.

### Use sine law to figure out the magnitude of each component.

### \frac{v}{\sin30^0}=\frac{30}{\sin105^0}

### v=15.5lb

### \frac{u}{\sin45^0}=\frac{30}{\sin105^0}

### u=22lb
