Student directionsRamp: Force and Motionactivity 2: Calculating Net force on aninclineName: Jade TsougasLearning Goal: Students will be able to calculate the net force on an object on an incline1.Joe is moving his refrigerator to take to college and he begins by pushing it across thewooden kitchen floor.On a flat surface like the floor, how do you calculate how hard he needs to push? Draw afree body diagram to help explain your answer and use the simulationRamp: Force andMotionto check your ideas. Record the minimum force Joe would have to use to movethe refrigerator on the kitchen floor.Lets say that Joe pushes with a force (F). There is a frictional force acting opposite to the motion of therefrigerator.
