- Homework Statement
- A ship is pulled at a constant speed by two small boats, A and B, as shown in Figure 4.27. The engine of the

ship does not produce any force. The tension in each cable between A and B and the ship is 4000 N.

a. Draw a free-body diagram showing the three horizontal forces acting on the ship.

b. Draw a vector diagram to scale showing these three forces and use your diagram to find the value

of the drag force on the ship

- Relevant Equations
- Fx = Fcos n

Fy = Fsin n

F

_{Ax = F cos 40 FAy = F sin 40 2FAx = Drag Drag = 6128N The answer says 6200N}
