## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

Fs = μ FN

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok, so I drew a free body diagram and tilted it 90 degrees so that Fg of the small box points right and Fstatic points left.

Fg = 4.7 kg x 9.8m/s2 = 46 N

we want Fs to equal 46 N , correct? so we use the formula

Fs = (0.71) x FN

FN being the force of big box on small box

.71 x FN = 46 N

FN = 64.8N

Which is wrong. any help?
