 P: 7 Hi, I have to do the Nellie Newton Problems on this Page here: Link! We just started with Forces and I tried to solve the problems but I´m not completely sure if my answers are correct. If there are mistakes it would be nice if you could tell me why and what I did wrong. Here are my answers: 1. 300N 2. 300N each 3. 150N each 4. 100N each 5. 150N 6. 100N Thank you, jawo3
 PF Patron HW Helper Sci Advisor P: 5,798 Looks like you did very well....until you got to the last one. What's your reasoning behind your answer to #6?
 Mentor P: 11,912 I agree with all except #6/F. Perhaps if you explain your reasoning for that last one, I could give a hint that would help you out. edit: PhanthomJay beat me to it.

## Little Nellie Newtons Force Problems

Does 75N sound better?

If it's correct, I think I know what I did wrong. If I'm right I just have to devide the force twice by two instead of deviding it by three.

Otherwise please explain me how I can solve these kind of problems because our teacher did not.
 Mentor P: 11,912 Nope, not 75N. Try drawing a diagram showing the forces acting on Nellie.
