Step 1

The below figure represents the free body diagram of the book on an inclined plane .

Step 2 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseWhen a book of mass m,is on rest on a table top , it has a magnitude of normal force of (N = mg). But when the plane surface forms an inclined plane , the magnitude of normal force is given by N- mg cose = 0 N = mg cose fullscreen
