1) force to pull it up 0.8 m = 101.93 * 0.8 = 81.54 N 2) force for horizontal displacement which can be found out by subtracting above value from total force applied = 200-101.93 =98.07 Now finding horizontal displacement 98.07 = 101.93 * d d= 0.96 m Now since we found out hori. and vertical dist. apply Pythagoras theorem to find out length of ramp. l^2= 0.96 ^2 + 0.8 ^2 = 0.9216 + 0.64 = 1.56 L = 1.25 m approx.
