I’m having trouble with understanding how forces effect the movement of that object.
How can both force and friction be in the same direction up the ramp and the object still slide down the ramp?
Based on the readings, I don’t grasp of the concepts of the forces that act on an object that is on a ramp.
In lecture today, Professor X was talking about the forces that do or do not act on an object while it’s at an incline and I didn’t understand how to determine whether or not the force is present.
With simulation, sometimes when I kept the applied force the same it kept speeding up.. I don’t get why it did that.
It is not much of a question but more of a wanting to know a deeper understanding on how an object on a hill creates a force of friction without having to move since force tends to be based on some acceleration.
How is it possible that a ramp can have a perpendicular upward force?
Is ice the only surface that cancels out friction? What about a waxed bowling lane or an oiled skating rink?
If an object is on a ramp and we are trying to find the acceleration, will the equation always be g sin or cos of the angle incline?
I don’t understand when the inverse of sin, cos, or tan should be used.
When drawing an FBD to represent the force of something on a ramp how do you determine the angles of the vectors if they are not already given.
When can we ignore the Y axis forces and when can we ignore the X axis forces?
I just want to know how do you figure out or what determines where the object that is being pushed up a ramp will end at the bottom of the ramp.
I really don’t understand how to apply the free body diagram.
