An affine coordinate system has unit vectors that are not mutually orthogonal. The and axes in the sketch constitute such a system for a planar situation. A vector may be represented in terms of its contravariant components relative to xy by constructing lines parallel to the respective coordinate axes. Such a set of components are F1 and F2 for the force vector in the sketch. The unit vectors parallel to the and axes are 1 and 2This force can also be represented in term of its Fand Fcomponents relative to the Cartesian XY coordinate system whose axis is coincident with x. Given that FX = 500 N, FY = 350 N, and β = 65°use vector algebra to determine F1 and F2.
