A 6520 kg helicopter accelerates upward at 0.57 m/s2 while lifting a 1190 kg car.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) What is the lift force exerted by the air on the rotors?

_________ N

(b) What is the tension in the cable (ignore its mass) that connects the car to the helicopter?

I have no idea how to do this and it is going to be on my mid-term.

Can someone please help me because I keep getting very strange numbers.

I used a kinetics equation but the answer was wrong!
