# Mass of Object on Frictionless Incline - Solved, Close please!

#### Spartan Erik

1. Homework Statement

"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. Homework 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!
