how would you graph/sketch 40 lbs at pi/3 south of west

(1) Answers

Well, pi/3 in Radians is equal to 60 degrees, and if your South is negative y and West is negative x, your line segment will be 60 degrees down of left, if you will. Your question is a little confusing, but I'm assuming you're drawing a force diagram, so probably draw the line segment at that angle and label it with the force of gravity- 40 lbs Hope that helps.
