In this simulation, students push common items of varying masses up an incline to explore the relationship of applied force, work, and energy. They control the angle of the ramp, friction, and amount of applied force. With a mouse click, they can also view detailed graphs of work and energy. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). The simulations are animated, interactive, and game-like environments.
