Given that the two equations:
R sin〖60°〗=10 sin〖θ°〗+v
R cos〖60°〗=10 cos〖θ°〗
How do I get the value R ? Please show me how to do it. Thanks.
Anyway the point I wanted to highlight was not that. I am probably confusing you more that I intend to so here is how I would like you to analyze.
Step1: There are three unknown , and two equations so if you want to relate any two you have to eliminate the other.
Relating by eliminating was shown above. Now here the discriminant of the quadratic should be for the range of values specified on this gives us an additional criteria that . So permissible values of are .
Step 2: Relating and
While eliminating any variable by trying to divide two expressions (like I did) you have to be careful as to the expression in the denominator is . This is the case when . So you can deal with it as a separate case and argue it out, or try to avoid division if possible. And in this case you can avoid division of the two expressions as shown below:
From the first equation w
We have ,
from here we again get
which has been solved above. The point to be noted here is that eliminating as shown here we have avoided any possibility of division by .
Step 3: General values of .
