 Homework Statement:
 What is the minim Force F necessary to make the crate start moving up the incline?
 Relevant Equations:

F_push=mgsin(ø)+F_f
F_f= µ_s mgcos(ø)
Problem Statement: What is the minim Force F necessary to make the crate start moving up the incline?
Relevant Equations: F_push=mgsin(ø)+F_f
F_f= µ_s mgcos(ø)
My values
m = 80kg
ø = 20
Fø = 15
static friction = 0,5
constant friction = 0,4
F _push = 80kg * 9.8 m/s^2 *sin(20) + 0,5 * 80kg * 9.8 m/s^2 * cos(20)
This gives 636,503N
Because the force is coming at an angle i divide my Newtons with cos
636,503N/cos(15) = 658,956 N required to make the crate move.
Attached below is the photo of the drawing.
