1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This man has mass 'm' and the angle of the plane is 'x'. The inclined plane is frictionless. He is standing on a scale which is placed on top of the blue wedge, what weight will the scale measure? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution If the man was standing on a regular block, I would say his weight would be equal to mgcos(x) But I am confused as to whether standing on a wedge would change things. Thanks for trying to help!
