Lesson 5: Pulleys
Show video from Mythbusters episode. Teacher lead discussion on what occurred in the video in relation to pulleys.
An example of a pulley system will be demonstrated to the class (the same pulley system from the video clip would be good to start with). Students will aid the teacher in constructing free-body diagrams for the masses in the system.
Students will be given a sample problem to complete and be handed in for the end of class. The problem should include the drawing of FBDs.
