- Homework Statement
- A buggy with a child has a mass of 25kg. On the soft ground, it's easier to pull the buggy than push it. The buggy is pulled with a force of 100N at an angle of 40degrees to the horizontal.

Calculate the vertical component of the force and then us it to find the total force exerted by the wheels on the ground.

- Relevant Equations
- Not aware of any, please advise me of any.

I don't know exactly where to start with this problem. But I'm going to try this, cos θ= adj/hyp cos 40° = Fx/100 Fx=100 cos 40° =76.60= 77N??
