(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A shipping container is hauled up a roller ramp that is effectively frictionless at a constant speed of 2.10 m/s by a 2250 N force that is parallel to the ramp. If the ramp is at a 24.7° incline, what is the container's mass?

2. Relevant equations

Fx = mg sin(theta)

F = ma

A = Fx / m

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried the equations above but I'm unsure if I'm doing this correctly ...

2250/9.8 = 229.592

229.592sin(24.7)=95.9389

2250/95.9389=23.4524 kg
