I know this probably seems simple, but I have searched my lecture notes, my textbook and the web but I cant find out how to input the 60 degrees into finding the acceleration. Just wondering if anybody has any hints? thanks in advance

Welcome to PF.

I know this probably seems simple, but I have searched my lecture notes, my textbook and the web but I cant find out how to input the 60 degrees into finding the acceleration. Just wondering if anybody has any hints? thanks in advance

hint:

The force has components ( X and Y).

And as You can see there is no acceleration in the Y direction ,so acceleration=F(x)/M

when F(x) component in the X direction of the force(FIDN IT USING The ANGLE!!!);

good luck

EDIT:Cyosis beat me XD

I'm starting to get old :<
