A person pushes a 18.0 kg lawn mower at constant speed with a force of 71.0 N directed along the handle, which is at an angle of = 43.0° to the horizontal .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) Draw the free-body diagram showing all forces acting on the mower. (Do this on paper. Your instructor may ask you to turn in this diagram.)

(b) Calculate the horizontal retarding force on the mower

N

(c) Calculate the normal force exerted vertically upward on the mower by the ground.

N

(d) Calculate the force the person must exert on the lawn mower to accelerate it from rest to 1.6 m/s in 2.0 seconds (assuming the same retarding force).

i found b,c, just a little confused on which to start d

b is 51.9 N

c is 225 N

there is a picture if it helps

Please help soon!!!
