    Can someone help me with this or link me to a useful source on how to do this question please? It's due on Monday and I'm stuck 😂 thank you!

    A particle P of mass 0.5 kg is on a rough plane inclined at an angle alpha to the horizontal, where tan alpha = 3/4 The particle is held at rest on the plane by the action of a force of magnitude 4 N acting up the plane in a direction parallel to a line of greatest slope of the plane, as shown in the diagram. The particle is on the point of slipping up the plane.

    (a) Find the coefficient of friction between P and the plane. (7 marks)

    Perhaps this would be better off in the Maths forum.
