# Overcoming Friction

Let's say a box is moved by attaching a rope to it and pulling with an applied force at a certain angle. Now, let's say that this is being done on an inclined ramp. How would I find the acceleration?

The mass, coefficient of friction, and applied force are known.

The problem I am having is the fact that this is being done on an inclined ramp. For example, if the box was being pulled on flat ground, then $\Sigma$$Fy$ would be 0 due to the condition of equilibrium. From that the normal force can be found, which in turn can find the force of kinetic friction, and finally the acceleration.

However, if this is done on an inclined ramp, the above would not work. What do I need to do differently to solve this type of problem?
