a mass m=8 kg sits on top of an h=1.8 m high table. The angle of the ramp is theta= 35 degrees. What is the length of the ramp.

  • physics -

    The mass has nothing to do with the ramp geometry. This is just a trigonometry question.

    If L is the ramp length,

    L sin 35 = 1.8 meters
    L = 3.138 meters
