Question

A person pulls a toboggan for a distance of 35.0 m along the snow with a rope directed

$25.0 ^ { \circ }$

above the snow. The tension in the rope is 94.0 N. (a) How much work is done on the toboggan by the tension force? (b) How much work is done if the same tension is directed parallel to the snow?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 5${\large \textbf{Knowns}}$

From equation 6.1, the work done on an object by a constant force $\color{#c34632}\vec{\textbf{F}}$ is given by:

$\begin{gather*} W = (F \cos{\theta} ) S \tag{1} \end{gather*}$

Where $\color{#c34632}S$ is the displacement and $\color{#c34632}\theta$ is the angle between the force and the displacement.
