Mass of the engine = 8000 kg 
Mass of each wagon = 2000 kg, 
Np. of wagons = 5 
Total mass of train = 8000+2000×5= 18000 kg 
Force, F = 40000 N 
Track resistance , R = 5000 N 
Total accelerating force = F −R =40000−5000=35000 N 
Let acceleration = x m/s² 
Acceleration , = Accelerating force / mass 
x=35000/18000= 35/18=1.94 m/s² 
Frictional resistance of 4 wagons = 5000×(2000×4)/18000 =2222 .22 N 
Accelerating force on 4 wagons =2000×4×1.944 =15552 N 
Hence total force exertred by wagon on wagon 2= Accelerating force +Frictional resistance 
=2222 .22 +15552=17774.22 N

Mass of the engine = 8000 kg 
Mass of each wagon = 2000 kg, 
Np. of wagons = 5 
mass of total wagon=2000*5
                           =10000
Total mass of train = 8000+2000*5= 18000 kg 
Force, F = 40000 N 
Track resistance , R = 5000 N 
Total accelerating force = F −R
                                 =40000−5000
                                =35000 N 
Let acceleration = y m/s² 
Acceleration  = Accelerating force / mass 
y=35000/18000
 = 35/18
 =1.94 m/s² 
Frictional resistance of 4 wagons = 5000*(2000*4)/18000 =2222 .22 N 
Accelerating force on 4 wagons =2000*4*1.944 =15552 N 
Hence total force exertred by wagon on wagon 2= Accelerating force +Frictional resistance 
                                               =2222 .22 +15552=17774.22 N

plz,make it best ans........request...........
why you always demand to make your answer best
@11013322031 yes ,exactly my point!!!!!!!!!!
@sweety sorry if said anything wrong but i think we should give answer to help others not for best answer or thanks...even i m new here and i noted that most of people share googled answer....which is not god i think
