1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 4000 kg truck is parked on a 15 degree slope. what is its friction force?

please show work, i'd like to understand how to do this problem

*** my college professor doesn't really teach in class, well let me take that back. he teaches some things but leaves us hangin out to dry for pretty much everything else so pretty much everyone resorts to using online help like this***

Well you should start by drawing a FBD of the truck on an incline and go on from there.
