Activity Description:

Pushing two wooden boxes with same force in Laws Of Motion - Class 9 Science Experiment

In this experiment, two rectangular wooden blocks with different masses are placed on a straight line drawn on the floor. Both blocks are given the same push simultaneously using a wooden scale.

Required Items:

  1. Two rectangular wooden blocks with different masses
  2. Wooden scale
  3. Smooth floor with a straight line drawn on it

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Place the two wooden blocks on the straight line drawn on the floor.
  2. Ensure that the blocks have different masses.
  3. Stand at one end of the line and hold the wooden scale.
  4. Give the same push to both blocks at the same time using the wooden scale.

Experiment Observations:

  1. Note the distance covered by each block after the push.
  2. Observe the behavior of both blocks during and after the push.


  • Ensure that the surface is smooth and free from any obstacles to allow the blocks to move freely.
  • Check that the two wooden blocks have significantly different masses to observe distinct outcomes.
  • Make sure the push is applied simultaneously and with the same force to both blocks.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

The experiment illustrates Newton’s second law of motion, which states that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force applied to it and inversely proportional to its mass.

The block with a smaller mass will experience a greater acceleration when the same force is applied compared to the block with a larger mass. Consequently, the block with the smaller mass will go farther than the block with the larger mass due to its higher acceleration.
