A block is placed on the top of a smooth inclined plane of inclination $\theta$ kept on the floor of a lift.When the lift is descending with a retardation $a$,the block is released.The acceleration of the block relative to the incline is

$\begin{array}{1 1}g\sin \theta\\a\sin \theta\\(g-a)\sin \theta\\(g+a)\sin \theta\end{array} $

1 Answer

Answer : $(g+a)\sin \theta$
When the lift is descending with a retardation (negative acceleration) $a$,the effective value of $g$ is $g_{eff}=g+a$.
The component of this acceleration along the inclined plane is
$g_{eff}\sin \theta=(g+a)\sin \theta$.
Hence the correct choice is $(g+a)\sin \theta$
