  1. m = m1 + m2 = 2700 + 888.9 = 3589 kg. =
    Total mass.

    F = mg = 3589 * 9.81 = 35,208 N.

    Fn = !@#$%^& - F - Fr = 0, a = 0.
    !@#$%^& - 35208 - 2100 = 0,
    !@#$%^& = 37,208 N. = Force applied by motor.

    Power = F * V = 37,208 * 2 m/s = 74,416
    Joules/s = 74,416 Watts. = 74.416 Kilowatts.
