Carrying household appliances can be very difficult due to the weight and size. Some movers place the appliance on a dolly and move it around, however this can cause damage to floors, and it also does not work on stairs. A new technique is to utilize moving straps. These allow the movers to easily maneuver the appliance from the back of the truck to the location inside your home. If the washer has a weight of 800N and the straps make a 30 degree angle with the vertical, then what is the tension in the strap? When using these straps, a horizontal force is typically applied to the top of the appliance. Why?
