Question

# Why is less effort needed to lift a load over an inclined plane as compared to lifting the load directly?

Solution

## For an inclined plain mechanical advantage =L/E, where L is the load and E is the effort. L/E =length of the inclined plain (l)/height (h) ; which is >1(since l>h) Therefore effort<load. hence less effort is  Required because mechanical advantage increases.
