Function and Applications

Practical compact device to demonstrate the investigation of the forces which keep a body in equilibrium on an inclined plane including a Roller as device under test for experiments with the inclinied plane .


  • plane:
    • Fast installation, no adjustment.
    • Angle of inclination of the track can be freely selected between 15°...45°.
    • Rolling body as measuring object. Advantage: all force application lines intersect at the centre of gravity.
    • Dynamometers can be attached parallel or perpendicularly to the track, or horizontally, without tedious adjustments.
    • Clear demonstration of thedecomposition of a force according tothe "force parallelogram".
  • roller:
    • Axially symmetric.
    • With two rear weigths which can be removed.
    • Holder for dynamometers.

Equipment and Technical Data

  • 2 demonstration rules and an angular scale to determine geometry.
  • 3 holders for dynamometers. 
  • Force components perpendicular and within a range of angles 105°...135°.
  • Down-slope driving force, normal force.
  • Relation between force, travel, vertical travel and work through determination of the trajectory components of gravitational force.
  • Mass of roller: 100 g ± 2%.
  • Mass of rear weights: 100 g ± 2%.
