Question

a test rocket is falling downward at a constant speed (however, it is acceleration in the horizontal direction). it is attached to a parachute with tension 980 N applied at an angle feta=64 degrees.

draw a force diagram of all the forces acting on the rocket. 

what is the mass of the rocket?

what is the acceleration of the rocket in the x direction?
