given that the coefficient of static friction is 0.05, what minimum force mag is required from the rope to start the crate moving?

When it says it is inclined at an angle @, does that mean that the rope has an angle @ above the horizontal? If this is the case, could you let me know if this process is correct:

Fx = [email protected] - fs = [email protected] - 0.5N = ma = 0

Fy = N + [email protected] - mg = ma = 0 ---> N = mg - [email protected]

from Fx:

[email protected] - 0.5(mg - [email protected]) = 0

Then I can solve for T, right?
