Basic components of force diagram
! Force (letter) !! Nature of force !! Condition for existence !! Magnitude !! Direction
|-
| <math>m_1g</math> || [[gravitational force]] || unconditional|| <math>m_1g</math> where <math>m_1</math> is the [[mass]] and <math>g</math> is the [[acceleration due to gravity]] || vertically downward, hence an angle <math>\thetaalpha_1</math> with the normal to the incline and an angle <math>(\pi/2) - \alpha_1</math> with the incline
|-
| <math>T</math> || [[tension]] || unconditional || needs to be computed based on solving equations. || pulls the mass up the inclined plane.
