Particle on a slope - includes friction
- Tim Pickard
Use the sliders to adjust the mass (in kg) and the coefficient of friction, mu. Grab the ring at the top of the slope to adjust the angle. You should then attempt to work out the forces, mg, R and F. Will the object accelerate down the slope? Can you calculate the acceleration? Click on the show/hides to reveal the answers!
Can you work out the values of the weight, mg, Normal Reaction, R and Friction, F? Check your answers by clicking in the Show/hide forces box. For your chosen values, will the Particle accelerate down the slope? If so can you calculate the acceleration?
