Coefficient of Friction on Inclined Planes


Students learn how to determine the coefficient of friction on inclined planes by resolving forces and applying conditions of equilibrium.

Later, as learning progresses, they examine different angles of inclination and the effects on frictional force requirements.

In part 1, the teacher works through resolving forces on an inclined plane. In part 2, we cover the relationship between normal reaction and frictional forces. In part 3, the teacher guides their class through calculating the coefficient of friction for maintaining equilibrium with varying masses and slopes.
