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

There is an inclined plane(mass M) with inclination theta kept on a frictionless surface. A block of mass m is kept on it which is allowed to slide due to gravity. Find the accleration of the block with respect to to incline.

3. The attempt at a solution

The problem with this is that my answer does not match. So please guys just tell me if my answer is right or not?

If it proves out to be wrong, I shall post my working as well (its too big)

My answer:

[tex]\vec{A}= \frac{(M-m)g sin \theta cos \theta}{M+m sin^{2}\theta} \hat{i}+ \frac{(M+m)g sin ^{2}\theta}{M+m sin^{2}\theta} \hat{j}[/tex]
