A trolley loaded with water bottles is pushed up an incline, making an angle of 15.0° above the horizontal. The force applied has a magnitude of 120 N and makes an angle of 15.0° counterclockwise with respect to the incline. Calculate the Fx (horizontal) and Fy (vertical) components of the applied force.
A ski jumper has an acceleration of magnitude 8.00 m/s2 just before he leaves the ramp. The ramp makes an angle of 18.0° counterclockwise with respect to the horizontal. Calculate the ax and ay components of the skier's acceleration before he leaves the ramp.
A box is dragged on a ramp with a force of 8.0 N parallel to the surface. The ramp makes an angle θ above the horizontal. The horizontal component of the force vector is 6.0 N. Calculate the vertical component of the force vector.
