Forces and motion

Analysis of the equation F=ma

This simulation visualizes the relationship between force, mass and acceleration.

Force in a constant mass

This simulation visualizes what happens to the acceleration and velocity when a force is applied to a constant mass.

Drag and push races

Watch these runs of two objects being dragged or pushed by a force and see what happens to the velocity and acceleration when the values of the applied force and the mass of the object are changed.

Drag by weight

Forces and motion

Explore the forces that act when pulling a cart or pushing a refrigerator, box, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change the friction and see how it affects the motion of objects.
