In this activity, students will use a Force Sensor to measure the force needed to lift an object and the force needed to pull the same object up an inclined plane. They will also calculate work done and efficiency and make conclusions.
Students set up a board against a stack of books to make an inclined plane. They then attach the Force Sensor to a wooden block and collect data as they pull the wooden block up the inclined plane.
Students determine the mean force in N required to pull the block up the inclined plane.
