# Friction on Inclined Plane Calculator

An inclined plane is also known as a ramp. It is a flat supporting surface tilted at an angle, with one end higher than the other. It is one of the six classical simple machines defined by Renaissance scientists. When an object slide down to an inclined plane, friction is involved and the force of friction opposes the motion down the ramp. Here is an online Friction on Inclined Plane Calculator to calculate friction force on Inclined Slope at angle A.

Code to add this calci to your website  #### Formula:

Fra = μWcos(A) Where, Fra = Friction on Inclined Slope at Angle A μ = Coefficient of Friction W = Weight of the Object A = The Angle of Inclination

### Example:

An object has coefficient of friction as 8, weight as 100g and angle of inclination as 40o. Find its friction on Inclined Plane

#### Solution

Friction on Inclined Plane (Fra) = 8 x 100 cos (40)
= 612835.5545
