I'm really struggling with answering this question...if anyone could help me, i'd really appreciate it!
The question is:
A car of mass 1200kg is towing a caravan of mass 650kg with a constant speed up a straight road inclined at 8degrees to the horizontal. The towbar between the car and the caravan is parallel to the road. The motion of the car is resisted by a force of magnitude 200N and the motion of the caravan is resisted by a force of magnitude 400N. Find in either order:
- The tension in the towbar
- the magnintude of the driving force exerted by the car.
If anyone can help then thanks!!
