A skier of weight 700N is pulled at constant speed up a smooth slope, of inclination 15 degrees, by a force of magnitude P N acting at 25 degrees upwards from the slope. Find the value of P.

• Physics -

constant speed, no friction?

the force of gravity downwards is 700Nsin15*cos25

Because there is no friction, then P must equal that value.
