**Applications of Newton's Laws**

**Applications of Newton's Laws**

__Reading__

BJU book: Ch. 8 "Applying Newton's Laws"

AP students additional reading: Princeton Review "Newton's Laws" - read the applicable sections

__Topics__

- Free body diagrams
- Pulleys, inclined planes, and elevator-type problems
- Friction

__Labs__

Memo: 2020-2021 labs will include hands-on and virtual, and may vary as the Covid-19 situation changes.

- The Friction lab is our regular go-to lab, but there are numerous virtual labs also which cover the topic, as well as labs you can do at home. We'll decide when we get here.

Below: Newton's 3rd Law - all forces come in pairs. For every action, there is a reaction.

__Lecture outline__

- Now we can combine Newton's 2nd Law (F=ma) together with vectors and "SOH-CAH-TOA" to solve some interesting, practical problems!!
- This Unit is just combining what we have learned so far...
- With these types of problems, start out by drawing a good sketch.
