Show steps that create variables and then use them in MATLAB assignment statements. Copy and paste your MATLAB work into a text editor so that you can add your name, class, and due date as a heading and problem numbers for each problem. Your homework must have only computer printed information. Remember to solve using vector expressions where possible! 1. Consider the following pin that experiences three simultaneous forces. Using vector addition find the resultant. From the resultant vector determine the angle and magnitude of the resultant force. Recall that in an x-y coordinate system a two-dimensional vector F can be written cos sin (cos sin ) x y F i F j F i F j F i j θ θ θ θ = + = + = + F If F x and F y are known, F and...
