above the surface of the ramp,

and the ramp itself rises at 25 degree above the horizontal.

how to find tension of the cable and How hard does the surface of the ramp push on the car?

please help

If the x-axis is along the ramp... y - axis is perpendicular to the ramp... write the equations:

[tex]\Sigma{F_x} = 0[/tex]

[tex]\Sigma{F_y} = 0[/tex]

what angle should i use the 25 degree rite?

Fx=T-11760sin(25)=0

Fy=T-11760cos(25)=0

Fx=T-11760sin(25)=0

Fy=T-11760cos(25)=0

What is the component of T along the ramp and perpendicular to the ramp... remember the cable makes an angle of 31 degrees with the ramp.

Also, don't forget the normal force in the Fy direction.

so Fy for nomal force = 11760cos(25) + 11760cos(31)?

No... just modify these equations that you already have:

Fx=T-11760sin(25)=0

Fy=T-11760cos(25)=0

you need to just change a few things... you need to include normal force as one of the forces in the y-direction... and you also need to change from T to the component of T in the x and y directions....

Tx=11760*cos(31)

Ty=11760*sin(31)

i'm not so sure how to get component for T :(

you got it...

Tx=11760*cos(31)

Ty=11760*sin(31)

now use these in your Fy and Fx equations instead of just T. you've inserted the normal force correctly.

no that's not right... you need to get the equations right first... you're almost there... post the Fx and Fy equation... but remember to use Tx, Ty...

post the equations...

Fx=11760cos(31)-11760sin(25) = 0

Fy=11760sin(31)-11760cos(25)+n = 0

right?

Fy=11760sin(31)-11760cos(25)+n = 0

right?

no.

these are the equations you need:

Fx=Tcos(31)-11760sin(25) = 0

Fy=Tsin(31)-11760cos(25)+n = 0

now, you have 2 equations and 2 unknowns (T and n). solve for T and n.

w=mg

Fx= Tx-w*sin(25)

since you said Tx= T*cos(31)

so T don't has any w in it?

Fx= Tx-w*sin(25)

since you said Tx= T*cos(31)

so T don't has any w in it?

Yeah. Tx = Tcos31 and Ty = Tsin31. Were you able to get the answers?
