This resource illustrates classical energy diagrams for 1D motion. It simulates an experiment where the energy of a cart with a magnet can be changed by putting magnets along a track. The resultant potential and kinetic energy are shown, along with the motion of the cart. The positions and polarities of the track magnets, and the position, total energy, mass, and friction of the cart can all be changed.
