Mechanical Advantage of an Inclined Plane
|To find the MA of an inclined plane, divide its length by its height.
MA = length / height
Interpret the diagram to answer the questions.
|1. What is the height of the inclined plane?
2. What is the length of the inclined plane?
3. What is the mechanical advantage of the inclined plane?
4. How much effort force would be needed to push the dump truck up the mountain?
