Students use the mouse to move objects of varying mass along a 1-D path. The simulation charts P-T, V-T and acceleration graphs as the students control applied force, friction, and gravitational constants. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). The no-cost simulations are animated, interactive, and game-like environments in which students learn through exploration.
This resource is part of a Physics Front Topical Unit.

As students use the mouse to move objects of varying mass along a 1-D path, the simulation charts graphs of position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration. Applied force, friction, and gravitational constants can be varied in this interactive activity. Can be adapted for use in either middle or high school.
