Forces in Two Dimensions and Inclined Plane WebQuest

Teacher Page


This WebQuest would be greatly useful for students to identify the force components on a body accelerating down an inclined plane.

Educational Standards covered-


ACOS Physics 1: Investigate and analyze, based on evidence obtained through observation or experimental design, the motion of an object using bot graphical and mathematical models(e.g., creating or interpreting graphs of displacement, velocity, and acceleration versus time graphs for one- and two-dimensional motion; solving problems using kinematic equations for the case of constant acceleration) that may include descriptors such as distance, displacement, velocity and acceleration.

ACOS Physics 2: Identify forces in a system and apply Newton's laws graphically by using models such as free-body diagrams to explain how the motion of an object s affected, ranging from simple to complex, and including circular motion. 

ACOS Physics 2a: Use mathematical computations to derive simple equations of motion for various systems using Newton's second law. 

ACOS Physics 2b: Use mathematical computations to explain the nature of action-reaction force pairs (e.g., tension, friction, normal) related to Newton's second and third laws, respectively.


HS-PS-1. Analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationships among the net forces on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.

CCRS Anchor Standard 5. “Make strategic use of digital media and visual display of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.”SL.11.33 and SL.12.33.

Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest. [SL.11-12.5]
