...And what have you been able to do so far?oh I skipped this question in my review because i didnt know how to do it there is also a question b to it:

b) An object is dragged 6 m up a ramp under a constant force of 27 N applied at an angle of 32 degrees to the ramp. Calculate the work done

Okay, let's begin with a great tool used in physics called the free body diagram:for this question nothing because i have no idea how to start it.

Okay, we wish to find the magnitude of the force $F$, which is equal in magnitude to $F_x$. We know the magnitude of $w$ (the weight vector) and we know $\theta$ where $\theta+\beta=\dfrac{\pi}{2}$...so can you use some trigonometry to relate $w$, $F_x$ and $\theta$?
