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.
T= M X G
The Attempt at a Solution
T=803.6 N-920 N
