I have answered the first part by calculating the retarden force is equal to 80*cos30. This gave me an answer of 69.3N.
I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to ascertain the force needed to accelerate the mass by 1ms-2 along the 30oto the horizontal line - as shown in the drawing.
I used F=mg to convert mass to weight = 196.2 N
I have looked at rearranging the F=ma equation.
and also some of the kinematics equations. [/B]
