Newton's First Law of Motion
Khan Academy podcast on Newton's First Law of Motion. Part 1
Motion in 2D
Students will learn about position, velocity, and acceleration vectors. Move the ball with the mouse or let the simulation move the ball in four types of motion.
Can you avoid the boulder field and land safely, just before your fuel runs out, as Neil Armstrong did in 1969? Our version of this classic video game accurately simulates the real motion of the lunar lander with the correct mass, thrust, fuel consumption rate, and lunar gravity. The real lunar lander is very hard to control
Motion in 1D
Explore the forces at work when you try to push a filing cabinet. Create an applied force and see the resulting friction force and total force acting on the cabinet. Charts show the forces, position, velocity, and acceleration vs. time. View a Free Body Diagram of all the forces (including gravitational and normal forces).
