Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics problem on work and forces. A simulation shows the motion of an object sliding on a surface with friction and external forces. The student is asked to determine the forces and construct a free body diagram.

This is part of a collection of similar simulations.
