The pole *AB* is held up by the rope attached to *B*. The magnitude of the force in the rope is
*P* and *Q*, the components of *T* that are parallel and perpendicular to *AB*, respectively.

To determine

The components of force, T that are parallel and perpendicular to AB.

**Calculation:**

First, we can draw the force triangle for given information.

Here, P is the component of T that parallel to AB, and Q is the component of T that perpendicular to AB.

From this figure,

By applying law of sines,
