Title Games in Net Force
Description A guided virtual lab activity to get students thinking about how the net force on an object changes its motion. Some students initially think that the forces will be different depending on where on the rope the players are located (one of the introductory slides attempts to address this). They may still think the computer simulation does not reflect the real-world, though. Caveats: - It may not be clear that the candy cart is operating in "frictionless" conditions (the players must have friction). - In a real game, you can't add and remove people from the rope.
