Description of Inclined Plane And Sliding Friction Apparatus:
Consisting mostly of metal construction with a machine ground steel plane. The plane carries a free running pulley at one end and at the other end is hinged to the base plate. Two vertical pillars located either side of the plane carry a cross bar which can be positioned at various levels by set screws to tilt the plane. A knurled screw permits fine adjustment of the angle of the plane which has a maximum value of 45º. The angle is displayed on a Clinometer Protractor on the front face of the plane. Eight sliding surfaces are supplied on opposite faces of 10 cm x 10 cm pads having a total mass of 1 Kg each. Additional loads of 2 x 1 Kg each and 1 x 500 gm together with 1 Kg weight carrier are also provided. Certain materials are provided on both half area and full area of the pads. Other surfaces include steel, glass, aluminium and PVC.
