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

2. Relevant equations

F=MA

3. The attempt at a solution

Weight

M*G=55.5*9.81

Parallel force

sin(30)544.455=272.228

Perpendicular force To Plane

cos(30)544.455=471.512

Figured out that the man is pushing with a force of

tan(30)544.455=314.341N

Normal Force

Wouldn't it be the opposite to the perpendicular force? 471.512? But this is wrong??? HELP. What other force in the perpendicular direction am I missing?
