Hi, im really stuck on this question, any help would be really really helpful!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

During takeoff a 76kg high jumper experiences a GRF of 1750N acting at an angle of 70 degrees to the horizontal. Taking acceleration due to gravity to be 9.81 ms and ignoring air resistance, calculate the HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL accleration experienced by the jumper at this point in time.

I think i need to work out the net force first, but after this im completely confused. Thanks
