2. Tyler pulls a box full of baby ferrets across the floor by means of a rope that is tied to the box. The rope makes an angle of 41 degrees with the horizontal and tyler pulls on the rope with a force of 60N.

a)What is the horizontal component of the force that tyler is applying?

b)If the box and ferrets have a mass of 120kg, and are on a frictionless surface, what is the acceleration of the box and ferrets?

c) if the box was traveling at 15m/s when the force was first applied, how far will the box travel in the following 8 seconds/

Please explain in very simple terms.
