Answer:966 NExplanation:For computing the component of the weight we first need to compute the object weight which is shown below:

Weight = (115 kg)(9.8 m/s²)

= 1,127 N

Now the weight of the box along the surface with an angle of 59 is

= (1,127 N) (sin 59 degree)

=

966 NHence, the weight component of the box along the surface is 966 N
