Main Question or Discussion Point

So. I stumbled upon this brilliant little deuction; it is simply marvelous.

This can be used when anyone needs to find the acceleration due to grav. When opposed by normal force equal to the objects weight in the y direction.

net force = normal force(call it n) - mg*sinA = 0

n = mg*sinA
n/m = g*sinA

this is the tricky part, because n is one farther in the alphabet than m, n/m simplifies to a

so a = g*sinA
