A person pulls a toboggan for a distance of 37.2 m along the snow with a rope directed 25.4° above the snow. The tension in the rope is 84.1 N. How much work is done on the toboggan by the tension force?

• Physics -

Work equals
(distance pulled) x (component of pulling force along the direction of motion)
= 37.2 * 84.1 cos 25.4 Joules
