The blocks A and B are connected by a piece of spring. Block B rests on an inclined plane of 40° and block A hangs vertically. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block A and the inclined plane is 0.29. Calculate the acceleration of the system if the mass of block A is 0.15 kg and that of block B is 7.5 kg.
