What is the correct answer?


A body of weight W is required to move up on rough inclined plane whose angle of inclination with the horizontal is α. The effort applied parallel to the plane is given by (where μ = tanφ = Coefficient of friction between the plane and the body.)

A. P = W tanα

B. P = W tan (α + φ)

C. P = W (sinα + μcosα)

D. P = W (cosα + μsinα)
