A child sitting on a sled is pulled by a rope along a frictionless surface. The child and the sled weigh 214 N and the horizontal force on the sled is 53 N. What is the acceleration of child and sled? I am new and in the process of printing and posting the PDF flyer at my local community college. Kudos to the Admin here for putting together. okay... I am trying to solve simply by going 214cos(53), 214sin(53) also trying to use the basic 4 kinematic equations but have hit a wall. A friend told me about this forum so here I am. Thanks in advance !
