This problem is probably very simple, but it is giving me alot of trouble. I'm hoping someone could explain it to me. The problem is, as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A block of mass 2.0 kg is held in equilibrium on an incline of angle theta=60 degrees by the horizontal forceF.

a)Determine the value ofF, the magnitude ofF.

b)Determine the normal force exerted by the incline on the block (ignore friction).

The answers are:

a)33.9 N

b)39.2 N

I don't know how to arrive at these answers. Thank you to everyone to takes the time to read this.
