It's the 10th question. Iam getting the ans for R=90cos34= 74.6 and F=-30.3N, so I get total contact force by using the formula c= sqroot(f^2+R^2)= 80.52N
The ans in the text book is 92.2N. Iam not getting the right ans for coefficient of friction also which is 0.393

Can you pls show me the working
no.

I've provided the correct FBD ... this one is on you.

Hint: the system is in static equilibrium in both the parallel & perpendicular directions respective to the incline.

R=90cos34
F=90sin34-20
Mu=0.406
I don't get the right ans

R is incorrect … what about the component of the 20N applied force perpendicular to the incline?

F net is incorrect … the component of the 20N applied force parallel to the incline is not 20.

R+20sin34= 90cos34
Is this the way to do?

The problem statement says the 20N force is horizontal … that would be w/respect to the Earth’s surface, not the surface of the incline.

The reaction force in your diagram is also incorrect.

Your FBD looks nothing like the one I posted.

If you still can’t get the correct value for $\mu$, I recommend you seek assistance from your instructor.

I’m done.

Ok no problem. I will try to work it out. Thank you!

I got the ans. So F= 33.7N and R=85.8N
I got the ans 0.393.
Thank you so much!
