A 23 kg suitcase is being pulled with a constant speed by a handle that is at an angle of 25° above the horizontal. If the normal force exerted on the suitcase is 155 N, what is the force F applied to the handle?

and..

A paleontologists estimate that if a Tyrannosaurus rex were to trip and fall, it would have experienced an upward normal force of approximately 261,500 N acting on its torso when it hit the ground. Assume the torso has a mass of 3720 kg.
and i foudn that the magnitude is 60.4857 when it comes to rest

(b) Assuming the torso is in free fall for a distance 1.51 m as it falls to the ground, how much time is required for the torso to come to rest once it contacts the ground?

  1. In the first question, if the upward component of the pulling force is 155N

    then Pulling force= 155/sin25

    I do not understand the b)
