In this lesson, we will learn how to solve problems on the resolution of a force into two directions using the properties of a parallelogram and applying the sine rule.

Q1:

A force of magnitude 99 N acts due south. It is resolved into two components as shown on the diagram. Find the magnitudes of and giving values to two decimal places.

Q2:

A force of magnitude 137 N acts due south. It is resolved into two components as shown on the diagram. Find the magnitudes of and giving values to two decimal places.

Q3:

A force of magnitude 157 N acts due south. It is resolved into two components as shown on the diagram. Find the magnitudes of and giving values to two decimal places.
