Dear Nehal

Contact force has two component ,one is along the plane which is calledfrinction force and onther is alonh tthe normal to the plan which is called normal force.

in this case block is slipping with constant speed so mgsinα = μmgcosα ..........1

  and normal force = mgcosα  .................2

 

so resultant force  = √(μmgcosα)2 + (mgcosα)2

                                   =√(mgsinα)2 + (mgcosα)2

                                   =mg
