Can some one help me with 5 ii) a)?
Here is what i've done.
fx = P-250gsin3-150=250a
fy = R-250gcos3=0
fx = 980-900gsin3-600-P=900a
fy = R-900gsin3=0
right? simultaneous equation then solve for P and a.
which comes out as:
a=-0.313 ms^-2 (3s.f.)
but the answer from the mark scheme says P= 200N but a = 0.713ms^-2 which suggests the equation should be
can someone explain what i've done wrong and which one is right.
Sorry for being quite long. THanks for your help.
