Determine the component of force:
The force of 500N is acting at a point subtends an angle of 60° with the horizontal. Determine the component of force along X and Y direction.
Sol.: The component of 500N force in X and Y direction can be given as
H = Horizontal Component = 500cos60°
V = Vertical Component = 500sin60°
H = 500cos60°, V = 500sin60°
