MOTION AND FORCE – EXPERIMENTING ON THE RAILWAY

Students can use formulae to work out the average speed of a Narrow Gauge engine. They will also analyse which forces are in action on the railway, commenting on balance and impact of forces on the locomotive in action. At Statfold you can engage with the scientific aspects within this environment. Use formulae to work out the average speed of the train, and analyse which forces are in action on the railway such as; balance and impact of forces on the locomotive in action.
