There's a box sitting on a plank. The coefficient of static friction is 0.33. I want to figure out at which angle the box will begin to slide if the plank is tilted.


I know the factors that come into play are FN, Fg or Fgx, and Fs.



So far I have

Fnet= FN-Fs-Fg
=FN- μs-sin∅
=cos-0.33-sin∅

This doesn't look right... can anyone help me out?
