- Using the first equation: L cos (c) + F sin (c) -D sin (c) - W
= ma (vertical)
and the third equation: F -D =
Fex , explain and show how to
the fourth equation: L cos (c) +
Fex sin (c) - W = ma
- Using the second equation and the third equation, explain and
show how to obtain the fourth equation.
- Why isn't W multiplied by a sine or cosine?
- Using the given diagram, theorems/postulates of geometry, and
vectors, explain each term in the first two equations.
