|Explore forces, energy and work as you push household objects up and down a ramp. Lower and raise the ramp to see how the angle of inclination affects the parallel forces acting on the file cabinet. Graphs show forces, energy and work.|
Sample Learning Goals
- Explain the motion of an object on an incline plane by drawing free body diagrams.
- Calculate the net force on an object on an incline.
