  • Students should be able to measure the acceleration of a falling body.
  • Students will be able to apply the material from the course to real life situations.
  • Students will be able to find the minimum coefficient of friction for a particular equilibrium situation.
  • Students will be able to correctly write the equation of motion to describe a system involving both translation and rotation.
  • Students will be able to experimentally analyze a hanging spring – mass system.
  • Students will be able to analyze a system with two masses, massive pulley, incline and friction.
  • Students will be able to express the velocity of an object in x and y components and magnitude with angle.
  • Students will be able to apply conservation of momentum to solve a problem.
  • students will correctly choose axes perpendicular and parallel to acceleration (not necessarily the surface)
  • Students will be able to identify an appropriate model from experimental data.
  • Students will be able to identify common forms of mechanical and internal energy occurring within a system.
  • Students will be able to analyze descriptions and depictions of mechanical systems and create representative force diagrams.
