This online resource is a web page with a Flash-based interactive about frictional forces.
The resource consists of eleven slides with diagrams, written explanations and voice-overs to help students understand how frictional forces, including air resistance, can affect the motion of an object.
There is also a two-question quiz and a summary slide.
This resource provides some links to the Curriculum sub-strand Science as a Human Endeavour that introduces concepts relating to vehicle design and air resistance.
