    In this condition, force A is greater than force of X and Y. Hence, it is the condition of non perpendicular resolution.

    Non perpendicular resolution: It is defined as the resolution in which force resolved in two directions and they are not perpendicular to each other.

    By using Sine rule,

    (80 / sin α) = 40 / sin (180 – 2α)

    sin α = 2 sin 2α

    sin α = 2 [ 2 sin α cos α]

    cos α = (1 / 2)

    α = cos -1 (1 / 4)

    α = 75.52°
