    Fv = 79.63 lb

    The total upward force Fv is 79.63 lb

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We need to determine the total upward force, the y component of force;

    Given;

    Force F1 = 60.5 lb, 82.4° above horizontal

    Force F2 = 37.2 lb, (82.4-50.5) ° above horizontal

    The vertical component of Force F1 and F2 is;

    Fv = 60.5sin (82.4) + 37.2sin (82.4-50.5)

    Fv = 79.63 lb

    The total upward force Fv is 79.63 lb
