Inclined plane with height \(h\) (cathetus), bottom length \(b\) (cathetus) and length \(l\) (hypotenuse). Gravitational force \(F_{\text g} \) (weight) acts on a body on the inclined plane in the direction towards the ground. The gravitational force can be split into the force \(F_{\text H} \) alon the plane and the normal force \(F_{\text N} \).
