A barge is hauled along a straight-line section of canal by two horses harnessed to tow ropes and walking along the tow paths on either side of the canal. Each horse pulls with a force of 490 N at an angle of 16° with the centerline of the canal. What is the net force on the barge?

  • Physics -

    net force=2*490*cos16
