Students can use this simulation to investigate the friction on the object. Students can use this to design the experiment to investigate which surface has the most friction.

• Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
• Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
• Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!

Do some slight modification.

(1) When reset button is pressed, the mass and the applied force will be changed to "random" number.
In design of experiment, the students need to make sure the other variables are kept constant.
(2) When the surface is chosen, the display will be reset
