  • Q1
    What is a disadvantage of using an inclined plane to lift a heavy object?
    Heavy object usually take up more space.
    It takes less effort to move the object.
    The object must be moved a greater distance.
    Many objects are difficult to lift straight up.

  • Q2
    Students pulled the same mass up an inclined plane that was 20 cm, 30 cm, and 40 cm long. Each time, they used a spring scale to measure the force needed to pull the mass up the inclined plane. Which of the following is true?
    Question Image
    The least amount of force was needed on the 40 cm inclined plane.
    More force was needed on the 40 cm inclined plane.
    The least amount of force was needed on the 30 cm inclined plane.
    Less force was needed on the 20 cm plane.

  • Q3
    An inclined plane reduces the amount of force needed to move an object by-
    reversing the direction the object is moved.
    increasing the distance the object moves.
    transferring more of the force to the object.

  • Q10
    How does using an inclined plane make lifting a load easier?
    it decreases the force needed to lift a mass
    it doesn't help
    it makes the mass levitate upward
    it increases the force needed to lift a mass

  • Q11
    How does distance change the effort when using an inclined plane?
    as distance increases, effort increases
    as distance increases, effort decreases
    as distance decreases, effort decreases
    nothing, they both stay the same

    because it makes the work easier
    because it is a machine
    because it sounds cool
    because it makes work harder

  • Q14
    Movers needed to move a heavy box from the bottom of some stairs to the top of the stairs. They placed a ramp over the stairs and pushed the box up the ramp. Which best explains why the movers used a ramp to move the box?
    The ramp reduced the amount of force needed to move the box.
    The ramp increased the amount of friction needed to move the box.
    The ramp increased the height that the box needed to be moved.
    The ramp reduced the distance that the box needed to be moved.
