Pam McConnell 3/7/00 1 The Inclined Plane The purpose of this activity was to evaluate the relationship between the work input and the work output of an inclined plane at various heights. The inclined plane was made using a 1.47m board, with a stationary pulley at one end, leaned on the ring of a ring stand on a table. The height of the inclined plane was measured from the tabletop to the bottom of the end of the board above the ring. [See Figure 1.] Figure 1. Inclined plane apparatus The height of the inclined plane was set at 10.0cm and a cord was attached to an octagonal object with a mass of 1000.0g. The cord was threaded onto the pulley and the other end of the cord was attached to a spring scale. The end of the cord with the spring scale was pulled to move the object up the inclined plane. The force used to move the object was recorded from the spring scale. This was
