Learning Objectives Be able to resolve each force into its  rectangular components F x  and F y . Be able to define unit vectors i and j. Be able to represent the components of force  in terms of the Cartesian unit vectors i and j. Be able to determine coplanar force  resultants using the Cartesian unit vectors.
