a mass m slides on a frictionless surface of an inclined plane of angle x. The mass of this plane is M. The plane can slide on the horizontal surface.

I look for equations of motion for the mass m and the inclined plane.

I started by finding that, if the inclined plane would not move, the acceleration of m in x-direction is m*g*sin x * cos x and in y-direction m*g*sin x * sin x

Probably one can calculate forces and find as equilibrium between these!?

Could you please give me a tipp how I can find the solution?
