The physics of tobogganing and forces at an angle:

A child is tobogganing down a hillside. The child and the toboggan together have a mass of 50.0kg. The slope is at an angle of 30.0 degrees to the horizontal. Assume that the positive y-direction is pointing in the direction of the normal force. Assume that the positive x-direction is down the incline.

Find the acceleration of the child

a) in the case where there is no friction.

b) if the coefficient of friction is 0.15.
