Important Setup Notes:

Setup and Procedure:

  1. List steps for setup then procedure.
  2. ...

Cautions, Warnings, or Safety Concerns:

Discussion: The weights assume the place of static friction and the normal force. Each component of the weight of the block is balanced by each weight making the net force on the block zero. Thus, when the plane is removed from under the block, the block maintains its original position.
