## C6-02: INCLINED PLANE - FRICTION BLOCK

Category: C6 Friction
Purpose: Demonstrates that the coefficient of static friction is greater than the coefficient of sliding friction, and determines the coefficient of static friction.

## C6-01 INCLINED PLANE - FRICTION BOX AND WEIGHTS

Category: C6 Friction
Purpose: Shows that the coefficient of friction does not depend upon the mass of the object although the frictional force does.
