Forces and Motion: Basics – PHET Simulation

Forces and Motion: Basics – PHET Simulation

Topics

  • Force
  • Motion
  • Friction
  • Speed
  • Newton’s First Law

Description

Explore the forces at work when pulling against a cart, and pushing a refrigerator, crate, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change friction and see how it affects the motion of objects.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Identify when forces are balanced vs unbalanced.
  • Determine the sum of forces (net force) on an object with more than one force on it.
  • Predict the motion of an object with zero net force.
  • Predict the direction of motion given a combination of forces.
