I have to build a monorail that can climb a 45 degree slope length of the track is 8m. The mass of the monorail is .3kg and it has to carry a mass of 1kg up the slope.im given a 15V electric dc motor with:

Power = 6W at motor stall

no load rpm at 0.07 Amp = 3800

stall torque at 0.4 amp = 0.01N

i calculated that the force needed for the monorail to overcome static friction is 17.2N

i have to use the above info to determine what my gear ratio should be so that the monorail can travel up the slope...does anyone know how to do this?
