## Homework Statement

An object is on a frictionless inclined plane. The plane is at an angle of 30 degrees with the horizontal. What is the object's acceleration?

a) 0.50g b) 0.56g c)0.68g d)1.0g e)0.87g

## Homework Equations

F=ma a = g.sin(theta)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I set it up where a = mg.sin(theta) / m where I then get a = g.sin(theta)

where it's: 9.8 (sin(30)) and my acceleration would be 4.9 m/s^2. However, that is

not an answer choice with my options given, where I am now completely lost.

I sincerely would appreciate any help!
