Question

A helicopter carries a 1000-kg-car suspended from a rope below it. The helicopter flies horizontally at a constant speed of 25 m/s. The rope carrying the car makes an angle of 20° with respect to the vertical. (a) What is the tension in the rope? (b) What is the force of the wind resistance on the car? (c) Use the Special Cases sense-making technique on your answer to part (a) and (b) for a situation where the angle of the rope is at both of the two extrema (0º and 90º)?

Can you please explain your steps? I'm having a hard time with physics and could use an explanation instead of just the answer.
