Jason applies a force of 4.00 newtons to a sled at an angle 62.0 degrees from the ground. What is the component of force effective in pulling the sled horizontally along the ground?

  • physics -

    4cos62° = 1.88N

  • physics -

    If α is the angle that the force F makes with horizontal, F(x)=m•g•cosα

  • physics -

    The correct answer is F(x)=F•cosα

  • physics -

    1.87N
