Scott is rolling down a 30° slope on his skateboard.The total mass of Scott and the skateboard is 75 kg. The rolling friction between the skateboard wheels and the concrete is 9 N acting backward against the skateboard. The drag force due to air resistance is 11 N acting backward against Scott. What is Scott’s acceleration?
