Description:

This item is an interactive simulation relating to forces required to move objects along a 1-D path. Users control the amount of force as they "push" objects of varying mass, from a book to a refrigerator. Friction and gravitational constants may also be changed. A free-body diagram is included, plus simultaneous graphs of velocity vs. time and position vs. time. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET).
