Students watch the video then do a quiz

An excellent interactive animation that allows you to investigate the effect of forces on motion.

The Physics Classroom Tutorial is an online physics tutorial written for physics students aged 14 – 16. This section covers Newton's Laws including free-body diagrams, misconceptions, freefall and air resistance. Students check their understanding after each section with self-check questions. There are some useful animations in the Multimedia Studios section on the site.

An activity that revises types of forces, resultant forces and their effects, including terminal velocity and F=ma.

An interactive activity that explains how playing sports on the Moon would be different.

A site that revises forces, mass and acceleration and the link between forces and stopping distance.

A site that revises forces involved in braking, and thinking, braking and stopping distances.

A comprehensive site that covers forces, motion and pressure

A wealth of information about mechanics, very clearly presented.
