You are pulling a suitcase through the airport at a constant speed. The handle of the suitcase makes an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the horizontal direction. If you pull with a force of 7.5 N parallel to the handle, what is the force of friction acting on the suitcase?

    Wouldn't the cosine function apply here?
