Homework Help: Resultant Acceleration

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1
    If I have two graphs - one with y acceleration and one with z acceleration - is it possible to find resultant accelerations using vectors with this? I don't have x.

    I want to find the angle of an inclined plane and i need the overall acceleration to do this.

    Do you mean one acceleration is horizontal and ones vertical?

    Yes, I do.

    Is this in a 3D plain? {x,y,z} ?

    Yes, on a roller coaster. However, only the y and z exist but not x.
