Trial 1: When pushed with equal force which combination of person and wheelchair will travel the greatest length?
The distance a person in a wheelchair travels is determined by the net force. One force (either the person in the wheelchair or another person) pushes the wheelchair, the other force (friction of the tires on the ground) causes it to stop. The heavier the object, the more friction there is to exert an opposite force. CONTINUE
