Homework Help: Some basic physics help needed

  1. Nov 25, 2009 #1
    The car is stuck and the driver is trying to pull it, by pulling the rope in the center.
    I need to know with what force is the rope working on the car ?

    F1^2 = (h/2)^2 + l^2

    I pretty much failed

    sorry for my bad english.
    Please, I need this answer ASAP
