the formula for the IMA for an inclined plane is 1/sin(theta)...right? But what if the angle was zero (which would mean it is not an inclined plane), then you wouldn't be able to divide by zero....so how would you get the IMA if the angle was zero?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am very very confused about this...any help would be much appreciated.
