Homework Help: Find the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the

  1. Jan 17, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    m=25 kg, F1=88N[E55N],F2=54N[E], mu (coefficient of friction) = 0.350

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    88cos55 + 54=104.47, 88sin55+0=72.1. dheta=tan inverse (72.1/104.47)=34.6 degrees, what direction is Ff is my question and I would appreciate a full solution as well.

    you should draw a free body diagram, have you?
    there is at least one missing equation, in relevant equations.
    i do not believe anyone will completely solve a problem for you here. people will attempt to help you reach your solution.
