Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Charlie on Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 2:54pm.

An engine is used to pull a train of two cars out of a mine. The floor slopes upward at an angle of 24o. Each car has a mass of 0.8x104 Kg and normally travels without friction on the tracks. The engine can exert a maximum force of 1.4x105 N on car A. If the engineer again throttles back so that the force exerted by the engine on car A decreases at the constant rate of 3.9 N per second, how long before the train stoprs moving up the track? Assume the original speed was 2.9 m/s
