spiceStudy of inclined plane efficiency

Author: Nadia Circu


Implemented in:Czech Republic, Italy, Slovakia and Spain

Description: The aim of the GP is to teach the students recognition and graphical representation of forces acting on an object moving on an inclined plane and an object moving vertically, by showing them computer simulations and real experiments. Students have to make accurate measurements of the inclined plane experiment, calculating the efficiency of an inclined plane using a spreadsheet and finally they have to make graphical representations of its efficiency as a function of tilt angle.
