Chapter 4 WebLab#1: “Motion on an Inclined Plane” Notebook Section #9 * Go to the following website: http://lectureonline.cl.msu.edu/~mmp/kap4/cd095a.htm * Use the simulation to answer the questions below. Questions: 1) In a frictionless system (where the friction coefficient is zero), what happens to the acceleration of the system as you increase the angle of the inclined plane? 2) In a frictionless system, what happens to the acceleration of the system as you decrease the value of the hanging mass, M2? 3) If there is friction (where the friction coefficient is greater than zero), what happens to the

What is the angle? The friction coefficients? The value of M2?...
