Inclined Plane

Logo for Inclined Plane
This activity lets you alter the initial velocity, mass, angle, and height of an object on a frictionless inclined plane. The simulation then lets the object move down the inclined plane, and creates a graph of (one of) x position, y position, potential energy, kinetic energy, total energy, time, x velocity, y velocity, x acceleration, or y acceleration plotted against another choice from the same list. The student selects which of these variables are to be graphed.
