a 1000 kg car is moving down a road with slope (grade) of 15% while slowing down at a rate of 3.7m/s^2 .What is the direction and magnitude of the frictional force?(define positive in the forward direction)
Using f=ma
I have the mass 1000 kg, the acceleration 3.7m/s^2, and slope 15%
Would my force be the tangent of the angle 15??
