Concept Checker for Horizontal Circle Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Horizontal Circle Simulation consists of 24 questions organized into 6 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Horizontal Circle simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to identify the individual force types and their direction for a variety of objects moving in a horizontal circle.
  • The student be able to identify the effect that changes in speed, mass, and radius have upon the other parameters for an object moving in a horizontal circle.
