n = mg - Fmax/2
n = Fmax/(1/\small \sqrt3)
n = \small \sqrt3 Fmax
Thus
mg - Fmax/2 = \small \sqrt3 Fmax
Knowing that
mg = 5*9.8 = 49
 
Hence Fmax = 22 N

we can also find  
f
max
  directly by rearranging the two blue equations to solve for  
n
 , and then setting them equal to each other:
 
n
=
m
g
f
max
2
 
 
n
=
f
max

=

f

Thus,
 
m
g
f
max

=

f
max
 
 
Knowing that  
m

 ,
 
f

=
