Homework Help: Motion of magnet

  1. Dec 9, 2005 #1
    Do you have any information about motion of magnet as it rolls down an inclined plane? Maybe some links. Or how to count the magnetic force which stop magnet?

    Thanks in advance

    Find the component of the gravitational force along the incline plane. That will equal the magnetic force required to stop it from rolling down the ramp.

    how long will the magnet accelerate? Do you know formula on the magnetic force?
