1. Changing screennames won't help. The tutors want to know what YOU THINK. They'll help you but won't solve your problems for you.

3. None of that matters.

If you don't let the physics tutors know what you do and don't understand about these problems, they can't really help you. It's not that difficult to go back to all previous posts and indicate what you know, where you get stuck, etc.

4. The velocity is constant so there should be equal opposite forces.
