**1. The tension at which a fishing line snaps is commonly called the line's “strength.” What minimum strength is needed for a line that is to stop a salmon of weight 87 N in 11 cm if the fish is initially drifting horizontally at 3.3 m/s? Assume a constant deceleration.**

**2. F=ma, W=mg**

**3. I have a feeling this problem is really easy I just don't know how to do it. I thought I did it correct below but my answer is wrong. Can someone help me please?**

W=87N d=0.11m a+3.3m/s

m=87/9.8= 8.89kg

F=(3.3m/s)(8.89kg)= 29.3N

W=87N d=0.11m a+3.3m/s

m=87/9.8= 8.89kg

F=(3.3m/s)(8.89kg)= 29.3N
