Friction on an Inclined Plane
Study the friction between two surfaces and the forces on an inclined plane. Set the inclined plane at any angle between 0 and 45°. The included hanging pan holds the desired weight. Two wooden boards of different sizes and a metal plate are included. Students can determine the coefficient of static friction and the coefficient of sliding friction as well as verify the normal and frictional components of the force exerted by the plane. An instruction and experiment manual is included. Ages 13 and up.
