Question

Consider two people
pushing a toboggan with four children on it up a snowcovered slope. Construct a problem in which you calculate
the acceleration of the toboggan and its load. Include a freebody diagram of the appropriate system of interest as the
basis for your analysis. Show vector forces and their
components and explain the choice of coordinates. Among
the things to be considered are the forces exerted by those
pushing, the angle of the slope, and the masses of the
toboggan and children.
