Here's the problem: A sledge loaded with bricks has a total mass of 18.0 kg and is pulled at constant speed by a rope inclined at 20.0(degrees) above the horizontal. The sledge moves a distance of 20.0m on a horizontal suface. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the sledge and surface is 0.500. (a) What is the tension of the rope?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't know how to even start this problem, or how to find out what the tension is. Can anybody help me?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
