$\theta=4.69^{\circ}$ $F_1=4.31kN$

Work Step by Step

First we will sum the forces horizontally $(\rightarrow +) \sum \overrightarrow{F}_{x} =0 $ $6\sin70^{\circ}+F_1\cos\theta−5\cos30^{\circ}−4/5(7)=0$ Now we will sum the forces vertically $(\uparrow +) \sum \overrightarrow{F}_{y} =0 $ $6\cos70^{\circ}+5\sin30^{\circ}−F_1\sin\theta−3/5(7)=0$ Solving the system of two equations, we obtain : $\theta=4.69^{\circ}$ $F_1=4.31kN$
