http://www.compadre.org/osp/items/detail.cfm?ID=9973The Sliding Down an Incline Plane model shows a stone block is lying on an inclined plane. Initially, the component of gravity along the plane surface, Ft, is compensated by the force of static friction Fsf, which is proportional to the normal to the plane, N. Because the modulus of this force cannot exceed a limit value of ?|N| (? is the static fricition coefficient between the block and the plane). When the user increases the slope of the plane by dragging the double arrow at the plane top, Ft ends up being larger than this limit and the block slides down the plane
