# What are some examples of inclined planes?

A:

Some examples of inclined planes include wheelchair ramps, airplane evaluation slides and various loading ramps used on trucks. An inclined plane refers to any structure that is oriented on an angle, which resembles a triangle when viewed from the side.

An incline plane is often used in real life applications to make moving heavy or delicate objects easier. When moving an object up a plane, it requires a consistent force to keep it moving. This force, however, is much lower than having to lift the object all at once. When moving down an inclined plane, like a slide, the object will fall slower than if simply dropped, which is safer.

Real-life examples of trapezoids include certain table tops, bridge supports, handbag sides and architectural elements. Since a trapezoid cannot be three-dimensional, many real-life examples of trapezoids are only partly designed with that shape. For example, the surface of a table might be a trapezoid, but its legs and supports are not.
