A small plane tows a glider at constant speed and altitude.

If the plane does 2.00X10^5 J of work to tow the glider 165 m and the tension in the tow rope is 2660 N, what is the angle between the tow rope and the horizontal?

  • Physics -

    work=Tension*distance*cosTheta
    solve for theta

  • Physics -

    .455
