Suppose a block of mass = 10kg is on an incline plane that makes an angle = 45° from the horizontal. If a force of 10 N is being applied to the block, downward, and perpendicular to the surface, and the block is not moving, what is the static force of friction? What is the coefficient of static friction?

2. Relevant equations

[itex]\mu[/itex][itex]_{}s[/itex] = Fn

3. The attempt at a solution

[itex]\mu[/itex][itex]_{}s[/itex] = FN

Am I on the right track?
