The tractive force in a locomotive with two cylinders is given by (where c = Fraction of reciprocating parts per cylinder, m = Mass of reciprocating parts, ω = Angular speed of crank, r = Radius of crank, and θ = Angle of inclination of crank to the line of stroke)

A. m.ω².r cosθ

B. c.m.ω².r sinθ

C. (1 - c).m.ω².r (cosθ - sinθ)

D. m.ω².r (cosθ - sinθ)

Please do not use chat terms. Example: avoid using "grt" instead of "great".
