Homework Help: Finding the coefficient of static friction on an inclined pl

  1. Apr 5, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    So, I need to figure out the coefficient of static friction using the equation tanθ = µs ONLY. I have been given the angle 26 degrees, and a mass of 424.32g.

    2. Relevant equations
    tanθ = µs


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know where to start...
