here,
the force exerted by Bluto , F1 = - 300 N
force exerted by Popeye , F2 = 275 N
force exerted by Olive Oyl , F3 = 50 N
a)
the net force on Olive Oyl ,Fn = F1 + F2 + F3
Fn = - 300 + 275 + 50 N = 25 N
b)
mass of Olive Oyl , m = 30 kg
the acceleration of Olive Oyl , a = Fn /m
a = 25 /30 m/s^2 = 0.83 m/s^2
c)
let the time taken be t
for s = 5m
s = u * t + 0.5 * a * t^2
5 = 0 + 0.5 * 0.83 * t^2
solving for t
t = 3.46 s
the time taken is 3.46 s
Bluto is trying to run away with Olive Oyl while Popeye is trying to hold onto...
