  • Determine the correct linearization relationship when given a formula
  • Draw free body diagrams
  • Interpret information from free body diagrams
  • Determine net forces acting on different objects from its motions
  • Determine the sizes of friction acting on an object when the object is at rest versus moving
  • Determine the sizes of forces and accelerations of objects connected with a rope
  • Explain Newton’s 3 Laws in different situations

After Test:

Newton’s 2nd Law Lab: Constant Applied Force

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:
