Functions Used
cos - Cosine of an angle is the ratio of the side adjacent to the angle to the hypotenuse of the triangle., cos(Angle)
Variables Used
Force of Friction - (Measured in Newton) - Force of Friction is the force that opposes motion between two surfaces in contact, acting along the surface, when a body hangs by a string.
Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String - Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String is the measure of the frictional force that opposes the motion of a body hanging by a string.
Mass of Right Body - (Measured in Kilogram) - Mass of Right Body is the amount of matter in an object hanging from a string, which affects its motion and oscillations.
Inclination of Plane - (Measured in Radian) - Inclination of Plane is the angle between the plane of motion and the horizontal when a body is hanging by a string.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String: 0.24 --> No Conversion Required

<Body Lying on Rough Inclined Plane Calculators

Coefficient of Friction given Tension
​ Go Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String = (Mass of Left Body+Mass of Right Body)/(Mass of Left Body*Mass of Left Body*[g])*Tension in String*sec(Inclination of body)-tan(Inclination of body)-sec(Inclination of body)
Acceleration of System with Bodies One Hanging Free, Other Lying on Rough Inclined Plane
​ Go Acceleration of System in Inclined Plane = (Mass of Left Body-Mass of Right Body*sin(Inclination of Plane)-Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String*Mass of Right Body*cos(Inclination of Plane))/(Mass of Left Body+Mass of Right Body)*[g]
Tension in String given Coefficient of Friction of Inclined Plane
​ Go Tension in String = (Mass of Left Body*Mass of Right Body)/(Mass of Left Body+Mass of Right Body)*[g]*(1+sin(Inclination of Plane)+Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String*cos(Inclination of Plane))
Frictional Force
​ Go Force of Friction = Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String*Mass of Right Body*[g]*cos(Inclination of Plane)

Frictional Force Formula

Force of Friction = Coefficient of Friction for Hanging String*Mass of Right Body*[g]*cos(Inclination of Plane)
