1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A box with a mass of 6.00 kg is at rest on a ramp that is at an angle of 20 degrees with the horizontal. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the ramp is 0.800. Use g = 9.80 m/s2. You now want to make the box move by applying a force. To start the box moving, what is the minimum force you need to apply if your force is directed ... (a) parallel to the slope? N (b) perpendicular to the slope? N (c) horizontally? N 2. Relevant equations Force static = μs * Fn 3. The attempt at a solution I calculated part a by realizing that the minunum force would be if the box is moving down the incline. The difference of the static force and x-directional value of force gravity is the answer for part a, 24.092. However, for part b and c, I attempted to solve the values for solving the x and y components of the force needed to to move the box parallel to the slope in part a and did not arrive at the right answer.
