Step 1

Since we only answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts (up to 3) you’d like answered.

Step 2

Given:

Distance travelled = 21.5 m

Frictional force = 45 N

Angle with respect to horizontal = 27.5

Step 3

Part (a): Work done on the car... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosew=F5 = Fscose where F is the force s is the displacement 0is the angle between the direction of the force and displacement. Since, the frictional force always acts in opposite direction to the dircction of motion therefore, 0-180 plng in the vaues w 45x21.5x cos180 w967.5 jonle fullscreen
