(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 2.0 kg block on an incline at a 60 degree angle is held in equilibrium by a horizontal force.

A) Determine the magnitude of this horizontal force (disregard friction)

B) Determine the magnitude of the normal force on the block.

I have no idea which equation to use. All the equations I can find dont give me enough information to start the problem. The only equations that I can find include friction and other things not present in the problem.
