I am having problems solving this system of equations to find actual values for Fj and angle B. Here are the equations below thank you for your help in advance.
Fm*cos(70) + W*sin(5)-Fj*cos(B)=m(w X (w X r))
--> 11193 + 3.07 - Fj*cos(B) = 464228
--> -Fj*cos(B) = 453032 where Fj = -453032/cos(B)
Fm*sin(70) + W*cos(5) - Fj*sin(B) = m(alpha X r)
--> 32726 + 35.09 - Fj*sin(B) =36444
--> -Fj*sin(B) = 3683 where Fj = -3683/sin(B)
Thank you Dan for your help! My other question is just a check to see if i did the cross products correctly in the two main equations.
The first equation that is listed is on the Y-axis and the second is on the X-axis.
I was given the values for w=114.6, r=.5198, alpha=1031 and m=68
to solve for in the first equation m(w X (w X r)) and in the second equation m(alpha X r)
The numbers are not in coordinate format i,j,k so I do not use a matrix correct? Since I am dealing with the planes individually do I just multiple the values straight out. Please provide any information. Thank you.
