A skier is pulled up a slope at a constant velocity by a tow bar. The slope is inclined at 24.0° with respect to the horizontal. The force applied to the skier by the tow bar is parallel to the slope. The skier's mass is 61.9 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the skis and the snow is 0.140. Calculate the magnitude of the force that the tow bar exerts on the skier.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

N=mgcosθ

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought I was doing everything right but I got the wrong answer so I was hoping for a little guidance thanks!
