**1. Homework Statement**

We have to find the efficiency of a ramp for a lab. We are given an inclined plane, a wooden block and a few masses. We are also given a newton spring scale.

**2. Homework Equations**

efficiency = (Eout/Ein)*100%

Eg = mgh

Work = FD

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Is the efficiency equal to Eg/Work?

Because the only work i am putting in is me pushing the wooden block up the ramp. That will be the Ein. The Eout will be the gravitational potential energy of the object?

How would i calculate the efficiency of the ramp?
