Forces on the slate plane

The animation shows a moving body, which is on an oblique plane. The angle of the oblique plane can be changed.

The animation was developed as a offline application for Windows and Macintosh systems and for integration into Microsoft PowerPoint slides. The online version presented here serves as a preview. The exe or app file can be downloaded free of charge in the member area.

If the angle is sharp enough, the object begins to slide downwards. Then there is a sliding friction.

In the animation, the weight force FG and the resulting slope drive force FHA and the normal force FN are shown.

When the slope driving force FHA overcomes the adhesion, the object slides downward. The inertia of the body makes itself felt in the animation, so a realistic impression arises.
