written by Kevork Spartalian
This Physlet-based simulation demonstrates a constant force acting on three blocks along a horizontal frictionless surface. Position and time are given in meters and seconds.

This simulation is part of a larger collection of Physlet-based illustrations and tutorials developed for introductory physics.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
