check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

To calculate the angle which is make with the horizontal if the force acting on an object is 13 lb and the amount of weight is 29-lb. Now, use the formula of force to calculate the value of angle.

Step 2

According to the formula of force, if the force F acting on an object making an angle α and having weight W.

Step 3

Now, substitute F=13 and W=29 in the above-ment...
