Please someone help me? I keep getting close to the right answer but not quite.
N.B. I messed up on second half so I cut it out from my workings.

What answer were you given?

Edit - the 2nd line of your horizontal force looks a bit dodgy. Im presuming Fs = Fx, but even so, it looks like there is a sign wrong, as Pcos must be equal to the sum of the other two forces which hinder motion?

sorry, already solved it! I forget the split N into horizontal and vertical components... 😪

another issue, I cannot do C. Basically I replaced 9.81 earth's gravity with 1.6 moon's gravity and converted the 400N back into kg and then multiplied by moon's gravity.
But my answer is wrong for some reason

So what did you get for c)?
They've done 21.6*9.8/1.6 to get 132.5kg.
The thing is, gravity (moon or earth) is a linear multiplier on both sides of the equation as its balance of forces, and all forces depend on gravity. Why isn't the mass the same? Its as though they've assumed the 400N for the packing case is constant, but it depends on gravity?

But I thought we had to take the earth's gravity to get the box actual weight then multiply that by the moon's gravity

You have weights on both sides. Convert them both to masses (divide by earth gravity) and then multiply them both by moon gravity. The balance equation still holds?

one more (hopefully). How do you question C? I'm assuming it means where I drew the question mark...

n.b. what do you mean by book?
p.s. I've has less than 4 hours sleep last night as I work full time - which is why I'm asking dumb ass question...so appologies if this make me look stupid.

I meant the model solutions which are given for the questions, no offence was meant to you. We all make mistakes, its how you learn.

c) will be similar to the first question in this thread. Its a horizontal force which is pushing the box up. Its slightly greater than the answer to a) so it may even be right ...
