Can you tell what are the various forces which act on a body when it moves down the inclined plane???

Expert Answer:


Consider the body to be sliding down the plane. You must take all force components along and perpendicular to the surface of the block.

Balancing components along the perpendicular of the inclined plane

Balancing components along the surface of the inclined plane 

[a is the acceleration of the block along the inclined surface]

This equation gives the acceleration of a body sliding down a rough inclined plane.
