## Homework Statement

He gives the bike a little throttle providing an applied force of 1.20 kN to propel him up the 25 degree incline. THe combined weight of Chad and the dirt bike is 1.85 kN. If the force of friction is 250 N, determine the acceleration?

**2. Homework Equations [/b**

I used Fnetx(ma)= Ff + Fa + Fg ( parallel)

I found the mass by doing Fg / g to get mass which was 188.58 kg. so I know the Ff + Fa + Fg(parrallel) will be divided by this mass. I know Ff is -250. the applied force is 1200N. So what is the Fg( parallel). Or did i even do this right??
