COMPONENTS Break any force that is not along an axis into components along the axis E. REDRAW picture All forces drawn are either along the x- or y-axis Example: A sled (mass = m) is pulled up a hill (coefficient of friction = 0.2) with a force of F. " F x = ma x Fcos mgsin f = ma x " F y = ma y Fsin + N mgcos = 0 mgcos mgsin N Fsin Fcos f F...
