ME1300 – Statics Tutorial 2 1. A position vector extends from the origin to point A(2 m,3 m,6 m). Determine the angles γ β α , , which the tail of the vector makes with the x,y,z axes, respectively. Answer: o o o 0 . 31 , 6 . 64 , 4 . 73 = = = γ β α 2. Express the position vector r in Cartesian vector form; then determine its magnitude and coordinate direction angles. Answer: r = 3 i +6 j -2 k ; r = 7 m ; α = 64.6, β = 31.0, γ = 106.6 3. The hinged plate is supported by the cord AB. If the force in the cord is F=340N, express this force, directed from A toward B as a Cartesian vector. What is the length of the cord? Answer: F = {-154.9 i -193.62 j + 232.35 k } N ; 4.39 m

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
