Expert Answer:

thus clearly from the image it can be seen that the angle of friction is the angle between the resultant of frictional force and the normal forcee for a given applied force, and the normal force.
angle of repose is the maximum angle an inclined plane can have before a body on it starts sliding overcoming the frictional force over it.
