Free Body Diagrams Physics Mechanics Problems, Tension, Friction, Inclined Planes, Net Force

This physics / mechanics video tutorial focuses on drawing free body diagrams. It explains how to identify forces such as the tension in a rope, static friction, kinetic friction, normal force, weight force, and applied force. It explains how to break up the tension force into its components if an angle is provided. In addition, it discusses how to calculate the net force on an object using newton’s 2nd law and how to determine the acceleration of the object using that information. It also contain examples of finding the final speed of a block down an inclined plane as well as other kinematic problems relating to forces and acceleration. It covers the hanging mass problem and the block on an incline. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems. It’s full of formulas and equations.
