    Desperately need help on this. Can anyone help please?

    An object can slide on a path inclined at 15 degrees to the horizontal. It is acted on by a force of magnitude 50 N, acting at an angle of 5 degrees to the upward vertical, as shown in the diagram. Find the components of the force a) in directions parallel to and at right angles to the path b) in horizontal and vertical directions, c) in directions parallel to the path and horizontally, d) in directions at right angles to the path and horizontally, e) in directions parallel to the path and vertically f) in directions at right angles to the path and vertically.

    I think it's best if you start by drawing a diagram to show what's going on first.
