The angle between the vector F and the x axis is 40°, and the angle between the vector F and the y axis is 70°. Refer to the following diagram when solving Problems 2.72 through 2.75. (a) What is the angle between the vector F and the z axis? (b) Express F in terms of components. Strategy: (3) Because you know the angles between the vector F and the x and y axes, you can use Eq.
