To move a large crate across a rough floor, you push on it with a force F at an angle of 21° below the horizontal, as shown in the figure. Find the force necessary to start the crate moving, given that the mass of the crate is m = 36 kg and the coefficient of static friction between the crate and the floor is 0.67.

    I am not certain which way the force is directed: I assume downward.

    force normal=mg+F*sinTheta
    frictionforce=mu*forcenormal

    to start the motion, F*cosTheta = friction force, solve for F. It's just algebra.
