- Homework Statement
- A 25 kg box is being pushed down on by an applied force of 200 N inclined at 60° below the horizon.
- Relevant Equations
- Normal force: FN=m×g
- What is the acceleration of the box? Paper says the answer is 4 m/s2.
- What is the Normal force acting on the box? Paper says the answer is 418 N.
I calculated the Fay which is -173.205081 N, so I think that I have to add this two? Then the "new" FN and Fg would be 418 N.
Also when I do my calcs for acceleration I end up with 8 m/s2 not 4.
This is what I have:
