Two bodies are acting on one another on an inclined surface. Assuming a constant vertical input force and the lower body being vertically fixed in place on the right hand side, what will the angle of the inclined surface affect. In essence, will the vertical component of the reaction force on the supporting body's inclined face be constant with the angular reaction force increasing as the inclined angle theta increases, or will the reaction force be constant and its vertical component decrease as the angle theta increases?
The Attempt at a Solution
The two proposed solutions are mentioned above. We've got a debate running in our office about which one is correct, and I would like a solution if possible.
Oh and this is my first post.
