A block of mass m rests on an inclined plane and is attached by a string to the wall as shown in the figure. The coefficient of static friction between the plane and the block is $$0.25.$$ The string can withstand a maximum force of $$20$$ N. The maximum value of the mass (m) for which the string will not break and the block will be in static equilibrium is ____________ kg.
Take $$\cos \theta = 0.8$$ and $$\sin \theta = 0.6$$. Acceleration due to gravity g $$=$$ $$10$$ m/s2 2
