1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A ramp is shown in the picture.Which ramp is easier to rise an object of mass 2kg up?and why? 2. Relevant equations W=FS 3. The attempt at a solution The second ramp.The work done in rising the mass against gravity is same in the two ramps.That is W=200N*1 = 200J But rising in the second ramp,the mass has to move more distance. 200J=5*F So less force is needed F=40N The first ramp 200J=2*F F=100N In the second ramp one has to use less force to move it up so it is easier. My question is:If he uses 40N against gravity(200N),Why doesn't the mass accelerate down?
