A block of mass m is on a frictionless plane inclined at θ with the horizontal and is pushed by a horizontal force F at a constant velocity up the plane. The acceleration of gravity is g . What is the magnitude of the normal force N the plane exerts on the block?
1. N = mg cos θ
2. N =F/ sin θ
3. N = F
4. N = mg
5. N = F tan θ
6. N = F sin θ
7. N =mg/ sin θ
8. N = mg tan θ
9. N =F/ cos θ
10. N = mg sin θ
