The grade resistance F of a car traveling up or down a hill is modeled by the equation F = W sin θ, where W is the weight of the car and θ is the angle of the hill's grade (θ > 0 for uphill travel, θ < 0 for downhill travel). What is the grade resistance (to the nearest pound) of a 3000-lb car traveling uphill on a 3° grade ()?
