1. This is a higher physics question and i have gotten part a correct but i have done something wrong in part b? The answer to part a is 226N

Try resolving the new force of 140N then you know the friction from part (a).

Then use F = ma remembering what 'F' in the formula represents.

Which formula should I use because I used Fx=Fcos(theta)-Ff... And i got it wrong?

Resolve the new forces horizontally and subtract the friction (calculated in a)

Then use F=ma

I am such an idiot sorry I was writing 126 instead of 226

You're subtracting 126 instead of 226
