Mechanical Advantage of an Inclined Plane (Ramp) Calculator

An inclined plane is a tilted surface with one end higher than the other used to raise or lower objects. It is also called as ramp. The ratio of the length of the slope to the height of the inclined plane is mechanical advantage of the ramp. This online calculator is used to find the MA of inclined plane with slope and height.

Formula:

Mechanical Advantage of an Inclined Plane
MA = l / h Where, MA = Mechanical Advantage of Inclined Plane l = Length h = Height

Ladders, Escalators, Children's Slides are some of the examples of inclined plane.

Example:

Mechanical Advantage of Ramp

If the length and height of the ramp are 12m and 24 m, then
MA = 12 / 24
MA = 0.5
