[SOLVED] Weight/Normal Force of a block 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If P = 1.98, M = 1, Theta = 45 degrees what is the weight of m in newtons? http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/3339/fig450ph7.gif [Broken] 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm apparently doing this wrong. I was trying to solve for the normal force given that N = Mg/cos theta but this is just 9.8 so I'm doing something wrong. Any advice would be appreciated.
