Forces and Motion Online Lab: Balanced and Unbalanced Forces

Exploring balanced and unbalanced forces has never been easier! Students love this lab! There’s something about these little simulated mannequins that’s hard not to love. There’s 4 parts of this PhET that allow students to explore:

  • Balanced and Unbalanced forces
  • Friction
  • Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Newton’s Laws

Even better, it’s completely inquiry based! The PhET site has lots of teacher resources and other simulators. If you’d like something ready made, the worksheet I created to go with this sim is one of my best sellers.

I'm an international teacher in Abu Dhabi. I am seeking new ways to support teachers. I currently run a Teachers Pay Teachers store focused primarily on Middle School Science, and I am working on writing my first book on classroom management.
