A toy car of mass 50g travels down a smooth incline at 30 degrees to the horizontal. Friction can be ignored.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also Gravity is assumed to be 10ms

Calculate the net force on the car as it rolls down the slope:

For this I use M x G sin 30

so .05 x 10 sin 30 and got .25N - Hopefully this is right

The second part of this question is - Calculate the forces of the incline on the car as it travels down the slope.

I do not really understand what is being asked here - The only thing I can think it to be is Fn which would be .5N

Any help you could give me would be great.
