Homework Statement
What is the maximum magnitude of a horizontal Force F that can be applied without causing the block to move up the incline?
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
Resolving F into it's components and writing down the equations
For x:
[itex] Fcos(theta) + μMgcos(theta) = Mg sin(theta) [/itex]
For y:
[itex] Fsin(theta) + mgcos(theta) = N [/itex]
Are the two equations correct? Because solving for F from this doesn't give me the correct answer.
Where am I going wrong?
