## Homework Statement

A mass of 8 kg lies on a frictionless, horizontal floor. A force of 145 Newtons is applied to the mass at an angle above the positive x axis and a force of 16 Newtons is applied to the mass at an angle of 24.5 degrees below the negative x direction. If the angle for 145 Newtons is increased until the object just starts to leave the surface, what is the magnitude of the acceleration on the mass in m/s2 at this point?

## The Attempt at a Solution

F1=145 N with unknown angle

F2=16 N with angle of 24.5 degrees

F=ma

145N=8kg(a)

a=18.125

Is this correct?
