how do you determine the relationship between the angle of a ramp and speed of an object sliding down the ramp?

  • physics -

    The vertical distance that it falls determines the speed, in the frictional case. The component of the weight in the direction along the slope determines the acceleration.

    The acceleration ig g sin theta along the plane.

    Friction makes things more complicated. You need a certain minimum tilt angle to overcome friction and move at all.
