Inclined Plane: Forces Acting on the Body

Formula

Formula: Inclined Plane
Inclined Plane and Acting Forces
What do the formula symbols mean?

Downward force

Unit
Force on a body that acts parallel to the inclined plane and downwards.

Weight

Unit
Weight acts on the body on the inclined plane in the direction towards the ground.

Height

Unit
Height of the inclined plane. Measured at the highest point.

Length

Unit
Length of the inclined plane - that is, the length of the hypotenuse.
Explanation

Video

A inclined plane is a sloping surface. The highest point on the plane has the height \( h \). The length of the incline is \( \class{brown}{l} \). On this inclined plane, a body is placed under the influence of the gravity force \( \class{green}{F_{\text g}} \) and can slide downward when the downhill force \( \class{red}{F_{\text H}} \) is greater than the static friction force.
