Amp Up Your Ramp

Room 5 have been experimenting with inclined planes or ramps. Our challenge was to see who could move the marble the furthest and fastest using an inclined plane. Here are some of our observations
  • An inclined plane is a ramp that assists us in moving objects up and down heights
  • The steeper the ramp the faster something will go down it
  • The smoother the ramp the quicker an object moves across it
  • The longer the inclined plane the easier it is to travel in a straight line
