How would I go about calculating the acceleration of a mass being pulled up an inclined plane at an angle.
Given - mass, and presumably angles

So the object is being pulled up an angle at another angle.

  • Physics -

    Use the equation F = ma,

    but be sure F is the NET force up the incline. The net force will be the resultant of applied force, friction (if present) and gravity terms.
