003 Components of a 3D force with given distances

Problem 003
Which of the following correctly defines the 500 N force that passes from A(4, 0, 3) to B(0, 6, 0)?
A. 256i - 384j + 192k N
B. -256i + 384j - 192k N
C. -384i + 192j - 256k N
D. 384i - 192j + 256k N
 

Components of a Force

Forces acting at some angle from the the coordinate axes can be resolved into mutually perpendicular forces called components. The component of a force parallel to the x-axis is called the x-component, parallel to y-axis the y-component, and so on.
