1. how do u find the acceleration of the sled? and what applied force would be required to cause the sled to move at a constant velocity, explain your logic and show all your calculations.

2. Fs = mg = 12kg * 9.8N/kg = 117.6N = Weight of sled.

Fp = 117.6sin(o) = o. = Force parallel
to plane due to sled.

Fv = 117.6cos(o) = 117.6N. = Force
perpendicular to plane due to sled.

Ff = u*Fv = 0.42 * 117.6 = 49.4N =
Force due to Kinetic friction.

Fn = Fap - Ff = ma,
82 - 49.4 = 12a,
12a = 32.61,
a = 2.72m/s^2.
