Problem 23E

Galileo experimented with balls rolling on inclined planes of various angles. What is the range of accelerations from angles 0° to 90° (from what acceleration to what)?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

If an angle of inclined plane is 0 degree, the acceleration down the plane must be 0. If an angle is 90 degree, the acceleration will be the same as gravity, 9.8m//s If the angle is 2 0-90 then the acceleration is defined as g sin(the angle), where g = 9.8m/s a = gsin sin(0) = 0 a max = 0 sin(90) = 1 a max = g = 9.8 m/s²
