# PS-Force and Motion-simulation activity

Name _______________________________ Date ______________________ Period ____ Physical Science Force and Motion simulation activity Using your Chromebook and several simulation websites, complete a review of gravity, force and motion. Go to each website, in any order. The time limit is 10 minutes for each website. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/forces-and-motion-basics Explore the forces at work when pulling against a cart, and pushing a refrigerator, crate, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change friction and see how it affects the motion of objects. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/gravity-force-lab Visualize the gravitational force that two objects exert on each other. Adjust properties of the objects to see how changing the properties affects the gravitational attraction. https://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/microgravity/home/free_fall_ball.html

Shooting hoops on Earth and shooting them in space require different techniques. Watch an astronaut demonstrate basketball in space, and then try the simulation with and without gravity.

Using Gravity Simulator's rotating frame feature, you can easily study the complex orbital relationship between the various moons of Saturn, or the relationship between Earth's orbit, and the horseshoe orbit of Cruithne, an asteroid often referred to as "Earth's 2nd moon". Manual is under Help. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/gravity-and-orbits what would happen without it! Move the sun, earth, moon and space station to see how it affects their gravitational forces and orbital paths. Visualize the sizes and distances between different heavenly bodies, and turn off gravity to see https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/forces-and-motion 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). NOTE: there are 4 tabs at the top â€”use them all.
