ectors in 3- Vectors in 3 D When dealing in three dimensions, a vector can be written in terms of 3 components. How can we describe a vector in 3 D (magnitude and direction)? 1) Direction cosines / direction angles 2) Double projection 3) Find a parallel line

Unformatted text preview: Components of a vector Parallel to a Line • Ex. When want to express a force in vector form (components), but we only know the magnitude of the force. We can get the orientation of the force from the arallel line parallel line. y Express the force acting on the wall at A in terms of its components. A 3’ T =1.2 kips x B 4’ 9’ 1’ 16’ z y Find the resultant force (magnitude and direction) given the three-dimensional system below. 60 o 60 o 1000N 500N x 30 o 25 o 45 o 45 o 20 o 650N 150N 700N z...
