Force; Calculating X and Y Components of a Quadrant

Could you show me how to perform the calculation asked for? It is part B.

Calculate the theoretical x and y components of the first quadrant force vector using the cosine and sine of the measured angle and the measured first quadrant force. Then compare these values to the experimental scale readings along the x and y directions with a percent difference.


Solution Summary

Solution attaches a .doc with the calculations necessary to compute x and y values in the first quadrant and compare them to experimental results given.
