## Free-Body Diagrams in Two-Body Motion

Students are often confused about the forces in drawing free-body diagrams, especially so when they have to consider the different parts of multiple bodies in motion. Two-Body Motion Let’s consider the case of a two-body problem, where, a force F is applied… Continue Reading

## Home-Based Learning Using Google Meet

I conducted an online lecture this morning using Google Meet for the students who had to stay home due to the Leave of Absence mandated by the Ministry since they had recently returned from another country during this period of… Continue Reading

## Collision Simulation

I created this post here to bookmark some useful tools for use during my upcoming JC1 lectures on Dynamics. This is a simulation for collisions that show the momenta before and after collisions. It requires registration after one visit. A… Continue Reading
