if a ball of mass 1 kg with horizontal force of 10N climbs up a slope of 60what will be its total force?i mean the hori. component is known,mass is known,even the angle is known,how to find verticle component and force by which it is climbing up

You know the applied force and you know the information necessary to calculate the gravitational force assuming near earth surface. All you need to do is add the vectors. Using the graphical adding system for vectors, you can see that you'll need to use pythagorean theorem. The angle appears to be additional information to throw you off, unless this is a multipart question.
