Students will experiment with inclined planes to determine how to reduce the amount of force required to move an object. The students will have to solve a problem in which they must determine the most efficient way to move an object (box) up an inclined plane.
How can you adjust an inclined plane to reduce the amount of work required to move an object?

- 6.P.3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties of energy, the transfer and conservation of energy, and the relationship between energy and forces.
- 6.P.3B Energy transfer occurs when two objects interact thereby exerting force on each other. It is the property of an object or a system that enables it to do work (force moving an object over a distance). Machines are governed by this application of ...
