Suppose the ski patrol lowers a rescue sled and victim,
having a total mass of 90.0 kg, down a 60.0º slope at
constant speed, as shown in Figure 7.36. The coefficient of
friction between the sled and the snow is 0.100. (a) How
much work is done by friction as the sled moves 30.0 m along
the hill? (b) How much work is done by the rope on the sled in
this distance? (c) What is the work done by the gravitational
force on the sled? (d) What is the total work done?

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.

Here, the θ is the angle of the slope with horizontal, f is the frictional force, T is the tension, N is normal reaction, mg is the weight. The free body diagram for the given sled problem is:

Step 2

Given,

Step 3

The work done by frictional force (Wf) is the dot product of the frictional force (f) and the displacement (d), where φ is t...
