    basically, but the angle of your body will affect whether it hits your pecs or triceps more

    yes. straight down (or as straight as can be) would be tris

    yeah. what they said. whichever you pick, just make sure you keep it consistent

    doing your first 2 sets straight up and then leaning forward on your last set because you are tired is not optimal if you wanna do tri's more

    chest dips is a much wider grip with elbows out wide, you also tuck your chin and lean over more. Triceps is very close and straight up and down
