A crate is placed on an inclined board. The coefficient of friction between the crate and the board is 0.26 , and the angle of the slope is 16 degrees. Calculate the acceleration of the crate down the incline.
Forge of gravity parallel = mgsin(theta)
The Attempt at a Solution
Fg - Ff = ma
mgsin(theta) - umgcos(theta) = ma
so this is where it gets tricky for me.. I've tried factoring and removing a mass from each side.. but I'm still left with one mass.
What do i do? :/
