A fisherman in a boat is using a “10.lb” fishing line. This means that the line can exert a force of 45 N without breaking (1 lb = 4.45 N).
(a) How heavy a fish can the fisherman land if he pulls the fish up vertically at constant speed?
(b) If he accelerates the fish upward at 2.0m/s2, what maximum weight fish can he land?)
(c) Is it possible to land a 15-lb trout on 10-lb test line? Why or why not?
