Homework Help: Help with forces on incline question

  1. Feb 23, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A mass of 2000kg is on a 30 degree incline
    the mass is in static equilibrium
    a force F is applied to the mass (uphill) from the front of the mass
    the front wheel is 1m away from the centre of mass
    the rear wheel is 2m away from the centre of mass
    the center of mass is 2m above the incline
    the force F is 1m below the center of mass

    Calculate force F
    calculate the total load on the front wheels
    calculate the total load on the rear wheels

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
