1. Just a question for anyone who can answer it regarding M1:
The inextensible rod connecting the two bodies (Truck and car where the truck is the heavier body) is inclined at 30 degrees to the horizontal. If the system is decelerating at a speed of 1.02 ms^-2 , find the constant braking force on the heavier particle and the force in the rigid rod connecting both particles.
The diagram is below:

Consider the truck

Tcos30 + 400 + F = 1600*1.02

Consider the whole system

700 + F = 2000*1.02
