Forces that Oppose Motion - It's Not Just Science Friction

For Teachers 9th - 12th
A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the...

Work Done by a Constant Force WS

For Students 10th - 12th
In this work worksheet, students determine the amount of work done on moving objects given the speed of the objects. They also determine the work done on objects given the measurement of force and the angle above the horizontal at which...

Kinetic Energy, Work-Energy Theorem, and Work Done by a Variable Force

For Students 11th - 12th
In this kinetic energy worksheet, students solve six problems including finding work, determining kinetic energy, finding the coefficient of kinetic friction and finding work done on objects by air resistance and friction.

TE Lesson: Factors Affecting Friction

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers investigate the effect of weight on normal friction or the friction due to surface roughness. They tell about the effects of contact area that occurs as a result of molecular attraction by looking at data on line graphs.

Sliders - Static and Kinetic Friction

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers work in groups to conduct experiments the demonstrate the differences between static and kinetic friction. They consider how friction affects us in our everyday lives, determine the effects of weight on friction and...

E3 Ret Lesson Plan

For Teachers 11th - 12th
Young scholars explore friction. In this physics lesson plan, students will cover metal blocks with film to determine the changes caused by static and kinetic friction.

Power and Conservation vs. Non-Conservative Forces

For Students 12th
In this power worksheet, 12th graders solve four problems including calculating work done by friction, determining work done by gravity and the calculating the minimum horsepower needed to save a ship that is sinking.

TE Activity: Does Weight Matter?

For Teachers 6th - 9th
Students design and conduct experiment to determine if weight added incrementally to an object affects amount of friction encountered when it slides across a flat surface. They graph data from their experiments, and calculate...

Discovering Friction

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers watch a demonstration that introduces them to the idea that friction is a force that impedes motion when two surfaces are in contact. They work in groups to experiment with frictional force using a coffee cup on which...
Lesson Planet

Coefficient of Kinetic Friction and Surface Area

For Teachers 10th - 12th
Students investigate coefficient of friction with respect to surface area and applied force in contact with the sliding force.

Sliding and Stuttering

For Teachers 6th - 9th
Pupils measure frictional force existing between a moving cup and the surface it slides on. They conduct the experiment and answer discussion questions.
