Product Description
Contrast situations where work is done with different amounts of force to situations where no work is done such as moving a box with a ramp and without a ramp, or standing still.
Explain how inclined planes can be used to change the amount of force required to move an object.
Calculate WORK by multiplying amount of force by distance displaced.
