5.57: In the absence of friction, the only forces along the ramp are the component of the weight along the ramp, α sin w , and the component of F along the ramp, α = α cos cos F F . These forces must sum to zero, so tan w F = . Considering horizontal and vertical components, the normal force must have horizontal
