Hey would really appreciate help with this question, thx :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A lorry, of mass 12500kg, starts from rest up a hill. The hill has a gradient of 1:6 and the lorry accelerates at a constant rate of 0.1m/s2. If the resistance to motion, not the gravitational resistance, of the lorry is 2000N, what is the tractive force of the lorry?

thanx again
