1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A block of mass m=2.0kg is held in equilibrium on an incline of angle=60 degrees by the horizontal force F. a)determine the value of F b)determine the normal force exerted by the incline on the block (ignore friction). 2. Relevant equations Fnet = ma Fnetx = 0 Fnety = 0 3. The attempt at a solution So, first I thought about it If it is held in equilibrum, doesn't it means the object is at rest, at least, shouldn't Fnet = 0 since a = 0? I investigated my Fnetx and Fnet y. Fnetx = 0, then I have F - FgSin60 = 0 Fnety = 0, then I have Fg - Fgcos60 = 0 But it doesn't make sense because fg doesn't equal to Fgcos60 the answer for a) 34N and b) 39 please correct my approach, where have I gone wrong??
