2.0-kg body rests on a frictionless wedge

  1. Sep 26, 2004 #1
    A 2.0-kg body rests on a frictionless wedge that has an inclination of 65.0° and an acceleration a to the right such that the mass remains stationary relative to the wedge. Find a

    This is one of the question i had to do for HW.
    Not really asking for an answer but it would be great if you provide one with a semi detail equation

    I just don't get how is a body at rest yet accelerting!! I probably misinterpret the question and I hope someone will point out where I misunderstood. Thank You
