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

Find all of the forces acting on the sphere. The problem must be solved in variables. A sphere, mass m, is resting on an incline plane at θ relative to the horizontal. The sphere is also resting against a perpendicular wall relative to the horizontal. Gravity = g.

2. Relevant equations

f perp. to incline plane= mg(cos θ)

f parallel = mg(sin θ)

fnormal = g

3. The attempt at a solution

Setting up those equations was as far as i got; i still need the force of the sphere against the wall perpendicular to the ground i think
