  1. Fg = M*g = 4 * 9.8 = 39.2 N. = Force of gravity.

    Fp = 39.2*sin30 = 19.6 N. = Force parallel to the incline.

    Fn = 39.2*Cos30 = 33.9 N. = Normal force

    a. W = Fg*d = 39.2 * 10 = 392 J.

    b. W = Fn*d = 33.9 * 10 = 339 J.

    c.

    d. h = d*sin30 = 10*sin30 = 5 m.

    KE = PE = Mg * h = 39.2 * 5 = 196 J.
