This item is a simulation in which users push common items of varying masses up an incline to explore the relationship of applied force, work, and energy. The ramp angle, friction, and amount of applied force are controlled by the user. Graphs of work and energy may be simultaneously displayed.
This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). See Related items on this page for a link to clicker questions developed specifically to accompany this simulation.
