acceleration question!!
A 4.9 kg object hangs at one end of a rope that
is attached to a support on a railroad boxcar.
When the car accelerates to the right, the
rope makes an angle of 25◦ with the vertical
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
look at the picture
F=ma
I used the formula to find F of the object, but im not sure how to use the angle given to find acceleration
