Size:  261.4 KB I have worked out that resistance force is 575n for a but for b, why doesn't he resistance stay the same even though the object is not on a hill anymore? In b the answer involves using 575n but how could it work? Thank you.

    the resistance in this problem is non gravitational

    Yes I understand that there is only one resistance force which is 575 worked out in a. But what I don't understand is that since the object is not on the hill, one of the horizontal force will be removed, so surely resistance will be bigger as a result?but the answer uses 575 , which I don't get Thanks

    still the same air resistance

    It doesn't make sense though, I would never have thought of that in the exam...

    makes perfect physical sense
    The air resistance should not change
