## Homework Statement

A 50 kg block on a frictionless inclined plane experiences a horizontal force. The plane is inclined at 30 degrees.

a- If the block moves up the ramp with a constant velocity, find the magintude of 'F'.

b- Suppose the block accelerates up the ramp at 0.5 m/s^2. Find 'F' now.

## Homework Equations

EF = ma...?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew a diagram with F going left on the x, nx going right on the x, ny going up on the y, and w going down on the y.

Do I need to find a maginitude for the normal force? How can I do that? I believe nx = F and ny = w, but where do I go from there, if that's even correct?
