Newton's 3rd law- dog sleds

  1. May 20, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The sled dog drags sleds A and B across the snow. The coefficient of friction between the sleds and the snow is 0.1. If the tension in the rope 1 is 142 N, what is the tension in rope 2? (M=112 kg, m=60 kg.)

    2. Relevant equations

    Any ideas of how to start this problem?

    3. The attempt at a solution
