Coefficient of friction = Pull Force/ Normal Force (weight)
Since block remains on same horizontal plane, it gains no potential energy.
However there is work done to overcome friction. Work = Pull Force X distance.
Measuring Friction between two surfaces
Weight = 20 newtons = normal force
Pull force for smooth board = 5 newtons
Coefficient of friction = u = 5/20 = 0.25
AMA = 20/5 = 4
IMA = 1
Work in = pull force / distance moved
Work out = weight X height moved = 0
Efficiency = work out/work in = 0
Efficiency = is meaningless because we did not
lift the weight
Inclined Planes for High School & College Students
Validation requires measurements of pull force, weight & distances

Weight
Friction Force and
component of weight
Uphill Pull Force = u X Weight X Cos a + Weight X Sin a
u = Frictional Force/Normal Force = Frictional Force/ Weight, for a = 0
A= Horizontal distance, B = Height, C= Hypotenuse
a = angle
IMA = C/B = 1/ Sin a; AMA = Weight/Pull Force; efficiency = AMA/IMA
Pull Force / Weight = u Cos a + Sin a; Reaction = Normal Force
Downhill Release Force = u X Weight X Cos a – Weight X Sin a
If Downhill Release Force = 0, then u = Tan a.

IMA = a/b; AMA = Weight/ Applied Force, efficiency = AMA/IMA
From Geometry, b/a = d/c because of similar triangles.
Efficiency = work out/work in = W X d/Force X c = AMA / a/b = AMA/IMA

IMA = 2 (theory)
to measure friction
IMA = 4 (theory)
AMA and IMA to be IMA = 1
AMA and IMA to be measured
measured
IMA & AMA is to be determined by the students
and may disagree with theory because of friction
of pulleys. Efficiency = AMA/IMA

Catapult as a Simple Machine
a = 23 inches; b = 3 inches; a/b = 7.66 = IMA; Pull = 95 NEWTONS = 21.1 lbs;
Force on Spring = 7.66 X 21.1 = 161.6 lbs,
Displacement of spring = 2.0 inches = 0.166 feet
K = spring constant = 161.6 lbs/0.166 feet = 973.5 lbs/foot
AMA = Force on Spring/Pull Force = 161.6 lbs/21.1 lbs = 7.66
IMA = 7.66; efficiency = IMA/AMA = 100%
Energy imparted to spring = ½ k x2 = 0.5 x 973.5 lbs/foot X 0.166 foot X 0.166

Push Force, P. has to overcome the weight, W,
and two friction forces. Ignore F1.
u = coefficient of friction, a= angle
P = W Sin a + W u + W u Cos a
P = W (Sin a + u + u Cos a)
W = 20 newtons, a = 4.67 deg, u = 0.25
P = 20 (0.0814 + 0.25 + 0.25 X 0.996)
P = 11.6 newtons; AMA = 20/11.6 =1.72
IMA = 13.75/1.125 = 12.2
efficiency = AMA/IMA = 1.72/12.2 = 14%
