Hi, I've never come across this sort of question before so I was wondering how I would approach it? I'm finding mechanics quite difficult in general too.
The angle on the incline is 40.1 and the reaction force between the boat and the plane is 825N.
b) The rope starts to fray. A horizontal force P is applied to the front of the boat so that the
rope does not have to hold as much weight. The frayed rope remains taut. If the tension in the
rope reaches 550N the rope will snap. We do not want the rope to snap. What is the minimum
value that the force P can take?
