# Confusing Mechanics: with angles :( watch

1. This is a pet hate of mine, angles They seem to make things messy, and I've made a complete mess of this question:
A glider of weight 2500N is being towed with constant speed by a four-wheel drive vehicle. The tow rope is inclined at 25 (deg) to the horizontal, the glider at 30 (deg). The air resistance has magnitude R N and the lift, L N. Calculate the values of R and L, given tension in rope is 3000N
