A 0.2-kg mass is hung from a string in an airplane awaiting take off. As the plane accelerates the string makes an angle of 26.7 degrees with the vertical, to the nearest hundredth of a m/s2 what is the acceleration of the plane? I tried doing mgsin(theta)=ma. 3. (0.2)(9.8)(sin26.7)=(0.2)(a) 0.8806652373=0.2a 08806652323/0.2=a a=4.4??? Please help. It woud be greatly appreciated. A fisherman yanks a fish straight up out of the water with an acceleration of 2 m/s^2 using very light fishing line that has a "test" value of 8 pounds. The fisherman, unfortunately, loses the fish as the line snaps. To the nearest tenth of a kilogram what is the minimum mass of the fish? I have no idea how to solve this equation. I tried doing F=ma but to no avail. Can you help me?
