Homework Help: Mass of Object on Frictionless Incline - Solved, Close please!

  1. Sep 18, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    "A 27N force parallel to the incline is required to push a certain crate at constant velociy up a frictionless incline that is 35 degrees above the horizontal. The mass of the crate is:"

    2. Relevant equations

    F = ma
    Fnet = mgsin(theta)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not sure what to do, but I imagine taking cos(35 degrees) would be a start..

    -EDIT-
    Nevermind, I have solved it. Just realized I had to use the formula!
