**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known**

You are playing with your daugther in the snow. She sits on a sled and asks you to slide her across a flat , horizontal field. You have a choice of (a) pushing her from behind by applying a force downward on her shoulders at 30 degrees below the horizontal (b) attaching a rope to the front of the sled and pulling with a force 30 degrees above the horizontal. Which would be easier for you and why

**2. Homework Equations**

F =ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think both situations yield the same net force thus the same acceleration
