1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am trying to understand how these Newton's laws work, specifically with an object on an incline. If a 5.00kg object is attached to a Newton spring scale on an incline (incline makes 30 degrees with the ground), what reading is the scale giving? 2. Relevant equations Fx = m*g*sin(theta) Fy = n - m*g*cos(theta) 3. The attempt at a solution Since the object is not accelerating upward, the netforce will equal zero. And I can solve for the force in the x direction. But how can I use these numbers to find the tension on the spring scale?
