## Homework Statement

What is the maximum angle (theta) for which the block of mass m in (figure) will not slide down the incline if the coefficient of static friction is 0.30 and ||P|| = 0?

Figure:

## Homework Equations

I know this isn't a hard problem, but I just seem to be stuck on it.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I started by replacing the force "P" with it's X and Y components, then adding the 2 forces to the block, "mg" and "N", the normal force.

After that I'm stumped. I'd appreciate if anyone can help me.
