Labeled dimensions and forces. 3. Show your thought process. 4. Follow all conventions. 5. Solve everything symbolically until the end. 6. Check answer Does it make sense? Check trends. Check units. 7. Convert to SI, plug in to get answers. VECTORS, FORCES, AND MOMENTS Forces are vectors (Magnitude and Direction) F ± = F x ˆ i + F y ˆ j + F z k ˆ OR F ± = F x i ˆ + F y j ˆ + F z k ˆ Where do forces come from?
