Homework Help: Not enough info?

  1. Dec 19, 2004 #1
    A woman at an airport is pulling her 24.0 kg by a strap at an angle of 22 ° above the horizontal as shown in figure Fig. P5.44. She pulls on the strap with a 45.0 N force, and friction is negligible.
    How would you find acceleration in this problem, there doesnt seem to be enough info but I know there is.
    I calculated this
    Fx = 41.72
    Fy = 18.86
