Question #1065

A moving rope (parallel to the slope) is used to pull skiers up the mountain. If the slope of the hill is 37 degrees and friction is negligible, what force must the rope provide to pull a 500 N person up the hill at a constant rate?

Expert's answer

The required force is Nsin(α):

F = 500 sin (37) = 301 N.

F = 500 sin (37) = 301 N.
