a horse pulls a barge along a canal using a rope 10m long. if the barge is 2m from the bank, the rope is taught and the tension in it is 500N. what are the components of this force at right angles to the canal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i worked this out to be 99.7N i used 500 x sin 11.5 (the angle between the rope and the bank)
