(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A block with eight of 455 N is being pulled at constant velocity by a force directed at 30 degrees above the horizontal. The friction force on the crate is 1163 N. What is the magnitude of the pulling force?

2. Relevant equations

F_{t}= kx

Fnet= ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to use the component method to find the force in the x direction and then so that I could find the pulling force but it doesn't work!!!
