A block of mass

1. Homework Statement

A block of mass

*m*rests on a frictionless wedge that has an inclination of θ and mass*M*. Find the acceleration of the wedge M to the right such that the block*m*remains stationary relative to the wedge1. Homework Statement

a, [itex] \theta [/itex], M, m

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Draw a FBD centered on m. There is the force due to gravity, the normal force due to contact between M and m. There is also a force from M that imparts to m. Am I missing anything else?
