John leaves school to go home. He walks 6 blocks North and then 8 blocks west. How far is John from the school?
Oscar's dog house is shaped like a tent. The slanted sides are both 5 feet long and the bottom of the house is 6 feet across. What is the height of his dog house, in feet and meters at its tallest point? What are the internal angles of Oscar’s dog house?
What are the Cartesian components of a vector force whose magnitude is 47.0 N pointing to the east of south?
What are the Cartesian components of a vector force whose magnitude is 47.0 N pointing to the north of west?
An object of mass m=2.5 kg is moving along a straight road in a direction pointing north of east. A force whose magnitude is 47.0 N, pointing to the West of South acts on the object. What is the magnitude of the parallel and vertical components of this force?
Cable AB exerts a force of 80 N on the end of the 3-m long boom OA. Determine the magnitude of projection of this force along the boom.
In each case resolve the force into x and y components. Report the results using Cartesian vector notation.
The guy wires are used to support the telephone pole. Represent the force in each wire in Cartesian vector form.
