## Homework Statement

*A cyclist rides along a road up an incline at a steady speed of 9.0 m s–1. The mass of the rider and bicycle is 70kg and the bicycle travels 15 m along the road for every 1.0 m gained in height. Neglect energy loss due to frictional forces.*

*Calculate the component of the weight of the bicycle and the rider that acts along the incline.*

sinθ=opp/hyp, not sure what else I need to use

## The Attempt at a Solution

Apparently the answer is 46N but I'm really not sure how to get to that. I found an angle of 3.8 degrees by doing 1.0/15 but I'm not sure where to go from there. The Mark scheme says F=sinθ=Wx1.0/15 I don't quite understand what it's saying.

**Thanks**
