Beth, a construction worker, attempts to pull
a stake out of the ground by pulling on a rope
that is attached to the stake. The rope makes
an angle of 49 with the horizontal.
If Beth exerts a force of 148 N on the rope,
what is the magnitude of the upward compo-
nent of the force acting on the stake?
Answer in units of N.

  • Physics -

    148 sin(49 degrees) = ___

    You can do this stuff.

  • Physics -

    I get -141.155?
