    A 230kg crate hangs from the end of a rope of length L-12.0m. You push horizontally on the crate with a varying force F to move it distance d=4.00m to the side (see attached picture).
    (a) what is the magnitude of F when the crate is in this final position?
    During the crate's displacement, what are (b) the total work done on it, (c) ...

    Here, let  be the angle the line L makes with the vertical. , which gives

    There will be a tension force in the string, which will be counteracted by F.
    T = F sin
    The force F cos will be the force responsible for bringing the block back to its equilibrium position.
    If ...
