The pole OB is subjected to the 6004b force at B. Determine (a) the rectangular components of the force; and (b) the angles between the force vector and the coordinate axes.

To determine

**(a)**

The rectangular components of the force.

**Given Information:**

**Calculation:**

The force is directed from point B towards point A. The coordinates of these points are,

The position vector of A relative to B ,

The unit vector in the direction of this position vector,

To determine

**(b)**

The angle between force vector and coordinate axes.
