I know this must be a very simple problem but the answer is puzzling me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 2Kg mass is sitting on a 60 degree incline (disregard friction) and i held in equilibrium.

A) What is Horizontl Force (book answer 34N)

B) What is Nomal Force (book answer 39N)

The only force I see acting on the mass is Gravity, so my answer is 2x9.81 equals 19.62N

The Normal Force would also be 19.62N with no Fricition.

What am I missing.

Thanks in advance for your time and trouble.
