A roller coaster is towed up an incline at a steady speed of 0.50 m/s by a chain parallel to the surface of the incline. The slope is 3.0%, which means that the elevation increases by 3.0 m for every 100.0 m of horizontal distance. The mass of the roller coaster is 400.0 kg. Ignoring friction, what is the magnitude of the force exerted on the roller coaster by the chain?
