I just want to check if I am doing the right thing with this force diagram.

Forgetting the force of friction for the moment, if I know that the body is accelerating at 6.34ms^-2 with a mass of 6000kg; and the opposing force of mgsin3 is 3077.4N, then would the I have to add that to the acceleration force? Therefore Force acceleration would be 38040 + 3077.4 = 41117.4N...

My actual question is about friction. Do I have sufficient values to calculate the Force of friction or the friction co-efficient?

F of Normal = mu x N
