    try drawing a free body diagram, it will help you analyse the forces

    you should get a diagram looking something like this but ideally you would also add |dw:1443188850991:dw| But I think its neglegible in this case because it wasn't given

    so now, try and use trigonometry to find the force in the vertical direction as a result
