Determine (a) the x, y, and z components of the force exerted by the cable on the anchor B, (b) the angles qx, qy, and qz defining the direction of that force. 1. Determine the rectangular components of a force defined by its magnitude and direction. If the direction of the force F is defined by the angles qy and f, projections of F through these angles or their components will yield the components of F.

Determine (a) the x, y, and z components of the force exerted by the cable on the anchor B, (b) the angles qx, qy, and qz defining the direction of that force. 2. Determine the direction cosines of the line of action of a force. The direction cosines of the line of action of a force F are determined by dividing the components of the force by F. cos qx= Fx F cos qy= Fy F cos qz= Fz F
