How Does the Angle of a Ramp Affect Speed?

Answer

The steeper the angle of a ramp the more it will affect speed. As the angle of the ramp increases, any object will have to work harder against gravity and this will slow down the speed of the object. It is possible that the angle could be so steep as to prevent an object from continuing forward and the object would actually roll back down to its original position.
