Suppose that a block with mass 40 kg is sliding down a frictionless inclined plane slanted at a 37 degree angle. Find how fast it is accelerating across the inclined plane.

  • physics -

    Use F = Ma; a = F/M

    Divide the weight component down the ramp (M g sin 37) by M.

  • physics -

    actually the other guy has it right except that he has sin instead of cosine
