A block of weight 18 N rests in equilibrium on a rough horizontal plane under the action of a force of 9 N. Find the magnitude of the frictional force on the block given that the external force acts
(i) horizontally
(ii) vertically downwards
(iii)downwards at an angle of 60° to the horizontal.

Is there a diagram given? If so, could you attach it

I think it would also help if you had the number of marks each part of the question is worth

there is no diagram. i think if i had one, the question would be a lot easier and i could solve the problem.
i don't understand where the 9N should go on the diagram

It's different in each of the parts. Draw a diagram and write the forces for i) with it (9N force) horizontal.

I drew this for you so hopefully it helps! Someone please correct me if I've drawn anything wrong

EDIT: I forgot the Frictional force in part 2 and 3 so please add them to ur diagram
thank you so much!
this helps a lot
