## Homework Statement

A horizontal force of 100 N pushes a 17 kg block up a frictionless incline that makes an angle of 31° with the horizontal.

Find the acceleration of the block.

## Homework Equations

F = ma

F_g = mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

Cos31 = 100/(component of force along plane) --> 100/cos31 = F --> F = 166.77N

Then I used this in my F = ma equation producing.

(116.77)N = (17)kg (a)

a = 6.86

This is the wrong answer.
