the magnitude of the motorcycle's acceleration

A 292 kg motorcycle is accelerating up along a ramp that is inclined 30 degrees above the horizontal. The propulsion force pushing the motorcycle up the ramp is 3150 N and air resistance produces a force of 250 N that opposes the motion.

What is the magnitude of the motorcycle's acceleration?

Solution Summary

It finds the motorcycle's acceleration given the propulsion force and the resistant force acted on it.
