Just curious if the answer to the question I've linked is 12.6 (3sf) as I don't want to pay for the answer. Can't find the answer anywhere else so hope someone here can help me if I haven't got it right. Thanks!

Sure but I don't think I can upload an image so I'll just talk through it

I first wrote out R+Psin45= 10g which meant that R= 10g-Psin45 or 98-(2^½/2)P

I then solved for Fmax= uR which gave Pcos45= 0.1 × 10g-Psin45

This led to me getting (2^½/2)P= 9.8-(2^½/20)P when simplifying

Finally I solved this equation for P which got me 12.6

Youve not accounted for the fact its accelerating at 0.3 m/s^2 when resolving horizontally

Oh wait so does that mean I'd have to include it when I do Fr=Pcos45? So it would be Pcos45+0.3=Fr?

Its simply newton 2 so horizontally

ma = net force

Youre trying to add an acceleration 0.3 to forces which cant be right. So the net force is obv

Pcos(45) - muR

A sketch of the forces, both vertically and horizontally, would really help to get directions / signs / acceleration clear. Intuitively, there must be a 3N excess force to accelerate a 10kg object at 0.3 m/s^2.

Oh okay I get it now so is the answer instead 16.5 (3sf)?
