Problem 1.2 Force Magnitude Minimization The boat is to be pulled onto the shore using two ropes. If the resultant force is to be 80 lbs. directed along the keel a - a as shown, determine the magnitudes of forces T and P acting in each rope and the angle θ of P so that the magnitude of P is minimum. Figure P1.2: Problem 1.2
Problem 1.3 Force Vector Addition Determine the magnitude of the resultant vector F R = F 1 + F 2 and its direction, measured counterclockwise from the positive x -axis. Figure P1.3: Problem 1.3
