A motorcycle and 66.0 kg rider accelerate at 2.0 m/s2 up a ramp inclined 5.0° above the horizontal. What are the magnitude of (a) the net force on the rider and (b) the force on the rider from the motorcycle?

  • physics -

    Net forceon rider=massrider*acceleration.

    Now, that same force is from the motorcycle, otherwise, how would the rider move?

  • physics -

    hows that it doesnt work whats the full equation?

  • physics -

    Hmmm.

    Surely the question is not wanting to add the force of gravity (weight) downward.
    I don't know what the problem is wanting.

  • physics -

    they are asking to get the force on the rider from the bike nd it is not the same as the rider net force on the
