    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A cart loaded with books has a total mass of 20kg and is pulled at a constant speed by a rope inclined at 30 degrees above the horizontal. The cart moves a distance of 10m on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the cart and the surface is 0.45. Find the tension in the rope.

    2. Relevant equations
