Expert Answer:

Draw an object and place it on an inclined plane. Draw the free body diagram for the object.

The weight of the object is a force that acts straight down. Resolve this force into two components.

i) One component is along the inclined plane.

ii) The other component is a force perpendicular to the inclined plane. A force equal and opposite to this component is the force that the plane exerts on the block.

Please draw the free body diagram and then solve the question.
