(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1,There is a crate being pulled by a motor along the floor on rollers. The line is at an angle of 15 degrees and is 500N. Calculate the force that is acting horrizontally on the crate?

2, state the effect the force has on the line connecting the crate to the motor.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1, I calculated the horrizontal by:

500 cos 15 = 482.96N.

is this correct?

2, Im not completely sure what its after for this one.

Increases in tension and pulls the crate accross the floor but thats a guess?

Cheers, Joe
