Trent and Dyson pull on opposite sides of a shopping cart that has a mass of 13kg.Trent pulls the cart to the right with a force of 85N and Dyson pulls the cart to the left with a force of 96 N.
A.draw a free body diagram of the shopping cart.
B. Write the expression for the net force on the shopping cart along the yaxis
C.Write the expression for the net force on the shopping cart along the xsix.
D. What is the normal force acting on the shopping cart?
E.what is the net force on the shopping cart along the xaxis including direction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1433899313393:dw Remember \(\large \Sigma F = ma\) From that FBD we have 2 forces along the yaxis we have 2 forces along the xaxis We can find out the Normal force by using the fact tht the force of gravity is mass x acceleration due to gravity And the net force in the horizontal direction can be solved by just combining the vector

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For b. Finding the net force would I multiply 13*85

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Normal force would oppose the force of gravity \(\large \Sigma_y = 0\) since the cart is not accelerating in the ydirection \[\large 0 = mg + N = (13kg\times 9.81 \frac{m}{s^2}) + N\] \[\large N = 13kg \times 9.81\frac{m}{s^2} = ?\] Same process with the xdirection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would the normal force be 127.4 and would the net force be 10 to the left.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your Normal Force (I'm assuming you used 9.8 instead of 9.81) is correct...in Newtons of course As far as the net force in the xdirection, not quite \[\large [96N\hat i + 85N \hat i] = 11N\hat i \] so it would be 11N to the neft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh okay , and for the acceleration of the shopping cart i added 96 and 85 and got 181 and then i divided it by 13 and got 13.92 is that correct ?
