English - Truss Analysis Using Method of Joints Part 1 of 2
Analyzing a simple truss using the method of joints.
RecurDyn Simulation of Inverted Pendulums with P and PID Control
RecurDyn simulation of two inverted pendulums. The first pendulum is kept upright with a translational force acting on the base, which uses Proportional (P) ...
A box sliding down an incline plane with friction: physics challenge problem
This video demonstrates solving a physics problem that involves a box sliding down an incline plane. The math is intentionally left symbolic in this problem, on...
Teachers TV: Action!
Examine forces, what they do and how they can be measured, with this four-section programme for Key Stage 2 science. Skateboarder assesses how the ...
Two Ropes at Angles Holding Object Up:Physics/Statics Problem
An object is hanging from a ceiling and two ropes are holding it up at angles. Find the the tension of the ropes. The easiest way to solve this problem is by .....

Vector Addition: head-to-tail method
This is a video explaining the steps (and doing an example) to add two vectors to determine the NET vector. I also explain the expectations for the problems: to...
Equivalent force couple systems
Equivalent force couple systems redraw a an equivalent free body diagram about a certain point. The object under analysis will always behave the exact same ...
I, Pencil: The Movie
A film from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, adapted from the 1958 essay by Leonard E. Read. For more about I, Pencil, visit .
Dynamics Demo: Cart
This is a demonstration of Newton's First Law using a cart on a track, showing that objects at rest remain at rest and objects in motion remain in motion with ....
Free Body Diagrams
Mr. Andersen shows you how to draw free body diagrams of various objects. The major forces (like gravity, normal, tension, friction, air resistance, etc.)
Physics: Calculating the Tension of a Mass Hanging from a Pulley
This video shows how to calculate the tension of a mass hanging from a pulley on a fricitionless surface.
Weight of an Object in Equilibrium Given Tension
Weight of an Object in Equilibrium Given Tension. In this example, we have a hanging weight connected to a knot, where the knot is connected to two other ...
Finding Forces Using Trig (The real video :D)
Use some really snazzy trig functions and Newtons First Law to determine the magnitude of individual forces acting on an object!!!!
Physics, Torque, Compound Wheel
Shows how to calculate the individual torques and net torque produced by forces applied to a compound wheel. You can link to all my videos at my website: ...
