PART 1: Question:What causes objects to move or stay still?
Open up PhET simulation “Forces and Motion,” (Forces and Motion Basics) and selectthe “Net Force” option.TASK 1a.Place 2 people that are the same size the same distance away from the cart.b.Make a prediction about the movement of the cart.c.AFTER you have observed the actual movement, click on the sum of theforces box at the top right hand corner of the simulation.Record the numberin the data chart.PredictedMovementActualMovementSum ofForces
