87. For simplicity, we denote the 70° angle as θand the magnitude of the push (80 N) as P. The vertical forces on the block are the downward normal force exerted on it by the ceiling, the downward pull of gravity (of magnitude mg) and the vertical component of GP(which is upward with magnitude Psin ). Since there is no acceleration in the vertical
