Lesson Plan: Equivalent System of Forces to a Couple Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to identify the conditions for a system of coplanar forces to be equivalent to a couple and find its moment.
Students will be able to
- identify when a system of forces is equivalent to a couple and find its moment,
- find missing forces that make a system equivalent to a couple.
Students should already be familiar with
- resolving systems of forces,
- force couples,
- using trigonometry to find angles,
