The coal car for a train has a mass of 1796 kg when it is empty. The track exerts a friction force of 3132. What force should the be exerted on it by the locomotive, to produce an acceleration of 1.3?
(please report the numerical value to 2 decimal places- units are not to be reported)
F = m a
Fpull - 3132 = m a
solve for Fpull
