The two forces are applied to the end of the boom *OA*. Determine the force F so that the resultant of the two forces lies in the *yz*-plane.

To determine

The force F so that the resultant of two forces lies in the yz plane.

**Given Information:**

**Calculation:**

If the resultant force lies in the yz plane, the rectangular component along x axis will be zero.

The coordinates f points marked in given figure are,

So, the position vectors of B and C relative to A are,

The force vectors along these position vectors are,
