me neither

it's moments though i got 300 * 2 * 4 should equal the total moment by the four men by the four men .. that gives 2400 Nm ... that's as far as i can get :/

Oh, moments at angles!

I've only done ladders and friction

the angle is for part ii) i've already done that though

4800/4 = 1200

Can you get that at all?

Or your answer of 2400 perhaps need to double it because two are perpendicular to the other two and have no effect?

actually i think i just did it .... i think i had to divide it by the radius of the capstan 2400/0.5 = 4800 -.- feeling quite stupid right now :/

it was all that ship jargon that got me ;D

Not much in C2.

Just sin(x)^2 + cos(x)^2 = 1

180 is pi

X degrees = piX/180

What needs explaining?

its a stupid question -.-
