Online simulation: Ramp motion and Free body diagrams, Velocity and Acceleration graphs (PhET/UC Boulder)

Posted on August 17, 2010 by


Interactive simulation of 1-D motion on an incline.

Explore forces, energy and work as you push household objects up and down a ramp. Lower and raise the ramp to see how the angle of inclination affects the parallel forces acting on the file cabinet. Graphs show forces, energy and work.



PhET is a collection of online science and math simulations sponsored by the University of Colorado, Boulder. They can be run from any web browser provided Java/and or Flash are installed on your local computer.
