Solve It with Fnet = m•a and Vectors

The Solve It with Fnet = m•a and Vectors Concept Builder challenges a learner to analyze a physical situation involving a force applied at an angle to the horizontal to accelerate and object across a horizontal surface. The analysis involves the use of vector resolution and Newton's second law. There are three levels of difficulty with each level adding an additional complexity. There are two different situations to analyze in each level. Numerical information in the situation is generated using a random number generator and will thus vary from person to person and from session to session. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 6 situations. Using the Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows for the storage of progress records.
