A man wants to move some heavy boxes up to the loft in his barn. He uses a 2.25 Horsepower motor to pull the boxes a distance of 9.35 meters up a ramp inclined at an angle of 36.2 degrees with respect to horizontal. The boxes have a coefficient of kinetic friction .381 as they slide along the ramp.
a) What is the heaviest box the man can pull up the incline with his motor at a constant speed of 76.5 cm/s?
This question has more parts but this is the only part I have trouble with.
