Homework Help: Normal Force and Tension on suitcase strap

  1. Jun 25, 2009 #1
    At the airport, you pull a 21.9-kg suitcase across the floor with a strap that is at an angle of 46.1° above the horizontal. Calculate the normal force in the strap, given that the suitcase moves with constant speed and that the coefficient of kinetic friction between the suitcase and the floor is 0.380. Calculate the Tension in the strap.
