## Homework Statement

A 82 kg sled is pulled forward from rest by a snowmobile and accelerates at 2.0 m/s2 [forward] for 6.0 s. The force of friction acting on the sled is 120 N [backwards]. The total mass of the snowmobile and driver is 460 kg. The drag force acting on the snowmobile is 540 N [backwards]

(a) Determine the tension in the rope.

(b) Calculate the force exerted by the snowmobile that pushes the sled forward.

## Homework Equations

T= M X G

## The Attempt at a Solution

T=MG

T=(82)(9.8)-(460)(2)

T=803.6 N-920 N

=116.4N
