Lesson: Motion of a Body on a Smooth Inclined PlaneMathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to solve problems involving moving a particle on a smooth inclined plane.
Sample Question Videos
A body is held at rest on a smooth plane which is inclined to the horizontal at an angle of . The body is released and slides down the plane under the action of its weight. What is the acceleration of the body in terms of the gravitational acceleration ?
If a body of mass 3 kg was placed on a smooth plane inclined at to the horizontal and was left to move freely, determine its acceleration to the nearest two decimal places.
A body was projected at 16 m/s up a smooth plane inclined at an angle to the horizontal, where . Determine the time that the body took to return to the point of projection. Take .
