# A box with mass 11.0 kg moves on a ramp that is inclined at an angle of 55.0∘ above the horizontal. ?

The coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the ramp surface is μk = 0.300.

Calculate the magnitude of the acceleration of the box if you push on the box with a constant force 150.0 N that is parallel to the ramp surface and directed down the ramp, moving the box down the ramp.

Friction force FF = m*g*cos 55*μk = 11*9.8*0.574*0.3 = 18.55 N

down acceleration ad :

ad = (-m*g*sin 55°+FF-F)/m =( -88.30+18.55-150)/11 = -20.0 m/sec^2

up acceleration au :

au = (-m*g*sin 55°-FF+F)/m =( -88.30-18.55+150)/11 = 3.92 m/sec^2
