This page features animations of carts traveling at constant speed on three inclines of equal distance but varying slopes. Students can observe how the variables of force and displacement affect the amount of work done by each cart. The question for students to consider is which path requires the most energy. This item is part of The Physics Classroom, a collection of physics tutorials written for high school students.
