**URGENT!! Find Acceleration of a sliding object**

## Homework Statement

A 42 kg block of ice slides down a 30 degree plane. Assuming friction is negligible, what is the acceleration of the block down the incline

## Homework Equations

F=ma

W=mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have drawn the right free body diagram. I adjusted the x and y axis so that the x axis lines up with the incline. I am just stuck as to how to approach this problem. Im assuming I will be using F=ma and solving for a. I'm just confused because I don't really know how to find F. I have found the x and y components of the W (weight) of the free body with the 30 degree.
