sector length. and resultant load

https://imgur.com/a/wNbIEES

Hi
for the geometry shown in the attached

How to calculate the total load q/cos(beta) (force/meter) on a circle sector (Radius= R), with an angle of (delta) as shown in the attached (need to find the length of the curve (L), not sure how to find it, I reckon the answer might be : qL/cos(beta))

how to find the resultant of the load in x and y (Rx, Ry) for the load from (Q1)

The answer is as follows but I need to know the detail/explanation, please

Ry=-Rq cos (delta)/cos(beta)
Rx=Rq(sin (delta) - sin (beta))/cos (beta)

Thanks

Below is the diagram:
Load.jpg
A circular arc of radius $r$ and angle $\theta$ has length $r\theta$.

It's difficult to read the subscripts in the diagram. What are q and delta? Why do you think L is relevant?

Difficult?

I find it impossible.

Can I borrow your spectacles sorry microscope?

Please all accept my apology. I did not notice how small & unclear the photo after uploading. The limitation of the file size makes it impossible to attach any explanation

So Now I change/correct the load distribution a little bit based on the better understanding to the problem. I also presented a few related examples. My question is to know how they got the results from basic math.

So I just found that I can not attach file size >19.5kB!! how to overcome this. I will try to update the attached in the main post
Your comments are appreciated

Thanks

It would be a lot smaller and clearer if created from scratch in, say, Microsoft Paint, and saved as a .jpg file on your PC. If you still can't upload it as an attachment, let us know.

Yes, some file formats have a severe restriction on size.

You should use .jpg format which offers much larger file sizes.
Further, you can use greyscale, which effectively leverages or multiplies the available canvas by 3.

I haven't done this in my example, which is full colour and still only 77k.

https://tinypng.com/ can shrink the size of a PNG or JPG.
