Lesson Plan: Resultant of Two Forces Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to find the resultant of two forces acting on one point and how to find the direction of the resultant.
Students will be able to
- find the magnitude and direction of the resultant of two forces acting at the same point,
- find a missing force given the resultant and the other force acting at a point,
- find a missing angle given the resultant and the magnitude of the two forces acting at a point.
Students should already be familiar with
- trigonometric ratios,
- the Pythagorean theorem.
