# Pressing was never a big deal

A block of mass $$m$$ is pressed against a wall by a force of magnitude $$F$$ at an angle $$x^{\circ}$$ with the horizontal. Coefficient of friction between the block and wall is $$\mu$$.

Find the minimum force (in newton) required to keep the block at rest.

Details and assumptions:

Take $$g = 10\text{ ms}^{-2}$$, $$m = \sqrt{5} \text{ kg}$$, $$\mu = 0.5$$.
