Calculate mass of this ball

  1. Sep 17, 2007 #1
    A horizontal force, F, holds a ball steady. Given F = 9.5 N, and θ = 16°, calculate the mass of the ball.

    F=ma=0
    Fx = 9.5 cos 16
    Fy = 9.5 sin 16
    Fx + Fy -w = ma

    If the force is horizontal, then what is the angle theta? Is this the exact statement of the question as you were given it?
