I am having some trouble finding out exactly how I could find net acceleration.

I know how to use it for finding force of drag, and other formulas, but for a project I need to actually find the net acceleration of me throwing a baseball.

This is a sample problem, that I need to know how to solve, and I'll use the 'method' to solve for my actual project:

Angle from horizontal (theta): 10degrees

Force of throw: 300N

Mass of ball: 2kg

2. Relevant equations

Fdrag = bv

Net acceleration = gsin(theta)

Sum of all forces = mg-ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to find the force of drag, which is ultimately what I need...

(assuming I actually know net accleration is 5m/s/s)

Fdrag = 4.8N

But I want to know how to find net acceleration.
