Inclines are simply types of ramp, which are basically parts of levers. Inclines will always have angles involved with them, and their surface, away from the fulcrum of the lever in which they are part of, generally becomes steeper. They, most importantly, reduce the amount of effort needed to lift the desired load.


Which would be easier on an incline:

Carrying or pushing the load upwards, or
lifting the load upwards?
