Lesson Plan: Systems of Unbalanced Forces Physics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to apply Newton’s second law of motion and Newton’s third law of motion to analyze systems of forces that produce a net force that is not zero.
Students will be able to
- apply Newton’s second law of motion and Newton’s third law of motion to determine the forces acting on objects that interact with other objects and their accelerations.
Students should already be familiar with
- Newton’s laws of motion.
Students will not cover
- objects with nonconstant acceleration.
