    Thanks so much! But I don't understand where the angle 70 comes from...
    Basically, the angle is 70 because there's 20 degrees between the frictional force and the horizontal. The frictional force and "Rc" are perpendicular, meaning the sum of these angles is 110 degrees.

    This means that, because the angles around the horizontal must sum to 180, then the angle between "Rc" and the horizontal must be 70 degrees.

    I will! I think it helped me that I drew a triangle between the forces Rc and the frictional force to get the angle 70!

    Not too often. However, I used them today and they were pretty useful. Btw, do you recommend using the Solomon papers for C3? Cause some of the C4 topics come up in those Solomon papers..
