## 010 Components of force normal and tangent to hypotenuse of a triangle

**Problem 010**

The triangular block shown in Fig. P-010 is subjected to the loads P = 1600 lb and F = 600 lb. If AB = 8 in. and BC = 6 in., resolve each load into components normal and tangential to AC.

## 009 Force with given component parallel to the incline

**Problem 009**

The body on the 30° incline in Fig. P-009 is acted upon by a force P inclined at 20° with the horizontal. If P is resolved into components parallel and perpendicular to incline and the value of the parallel component is 1800 N, compute the value of the perpendicular component and that of P.

## 007 Components of a force parallel and perpendicular to the incline

**Problem 007**

A block is resting on an incline of slope 5:12 as shown in Fig. P-007. It is subjected to a force F = 500 N on a slope of 3:4. Determine the components of F parallel and perpendicular to the incline.
