Intro to Forces using a PhET Simulation

In this activity, you will use a simulation from PhET Interactive Simulations to stage competitions between different size people to pull a cart full of candy. Unlike in real life, you will be able to see the strength and direction of the forces being applied to each object, which will help you make predictions about motion.  This lesson was derived from PhET http://sciencefriday.com/teacher-resources/12/10/2014/simulate-net-forces-to-predict-an-object-s-motion.html
