Question

The two forces shown act in the x-y plane of the T-beam cross section. If it is known that the resultant R of the two forces has a magnitude of 3.5 kN and a line of action that lies 15º above the negative x-axis, determine the magnitude of F1 and the inclination (angle, theta) of F2

F2 = 2.8 kN
F1
30°

Image Transcription

F2 = 2.8 kN F1 30°
