69. Each side of the trough exerts a normal force on the crate. The first diagram shows the view looking in toward a cross section. The net force is along the dashed line. Since each of the normal forces makes an angle of 45° with the dashed line, the magnitude of the resultant normal force is given by 2 cos45 2 Nr N N FF F = . The second diagram is the free-body diagram for the crate (from a “side” view, similar to that shown in the first picture in Fig. 6-53). The force of gravity has magnitude mg , where m is the mass of the crate, and the magnitude of the force of friction is denoted by
