An object with a mass of #5 kg# is on a plane with an incline of #pi/8 #. If the object is being pushed up the plane with # 15 N # of force, what is the net force on the object?
The net force of this object will take the form of
Here, the inclined force will be
Since it is opposite to the direction of the push, it will be negative, i.e.
So, the equation becomes
Plugging in the given values, we get
So, the net force will be
