38. The acceleration of an object (neither pushed nor pulled by any force other than gravity) on a smooth inclined plane of angle θis a= – gsin. The slope of the graph shown with the problem statement indicates a= –2.50 m/s2. Therefore, we find 14.8=°. Examining the forces perpendicular to the incline (which must sum to zero
