The mass M of the dresser is 150 kg. Swan can apply a maximum force of 700 N, and Crawfish 350 N. Obviously, together they can move the dresser; however, each of them insists on his own way of moving the darn thing, and they cannot agree. Show that by using his own method, each of them can move the dresser alone. What are these methods? Hint: The names in the problem are not quite coincidental, and the two methods are natural for Swan and Crawfish. 7 7 Mud from Tire (Stony Brook) A car is stuck in the mud.
