So as some of you know I am working on a independent study in statics. Well recently I was creating a problem packet for the Principles of Engineering class and one of the problems was NOT FRIENDLY. At first it's all like, oh yeah, this is simple, but as you go deeper into the mathematics of it, it gets messier and eviler (that is now a word). I did eventually get the answer thanks to my knowledge of physics, vectors and sign notation, which really was where the problem was. So now I change all the physics people out on APlusPhysics to solve the problem, and if you get it right, you get a:victorious: and maybe I'll make cupcakes..... Ready, Set, GO!!!
