About the course
What prevents a parked car from rolling down a hill? How do objects relate to each other in space? Learn about the integral elements of normal force, and get a primer on friction forces. Get to know the three types of friction forces and how they differ from each other.
Magnets, electricity, force, and friction - master the crucial concepts of Forces and Interactions!
Basic math and geometry
Students will understand how normal force counteracts gravity and propels objects down slopes.
Introduction to friction
Students will understand how friction acts as a force and how it is determined by weight and surface.
Static Friction vs Kinetic Friction
Students will learn to identify the difference between static and kinetic friction.
