Unit 6: Forces on the Body
- Identify the types of forces acting on an object in order to draw a free body diagram.
- Apply the concept of static equilibrium to determine the size and direction of forces, including tension, friction, normal forces.
- Identify classes of levers and explain advantages and disadvantages of each classes in terms of mechanical advantage and range of motion.
- Apply lever and static equilibrium concepts to solve for forces and calculate mechanical advantage in scenarios involving levers.
