### Vectors and Newton's Laws

Use the links below to access specific internet content for Vectors and Newton's Laws. The internet content is available at the GBS Physics web site as well as from other external sites. (Please notify the instructor of any broken links. Thanks!)

• Vector Direction - an illustration of how the direction of a vector can be determined from a scaled vector diagram; includes online solutions to pp. 3-4 of the unit packet.
• Vector Addition - an illustration of how to add two or more vectors using the head-to-tail addition method; includes online solutions to pp. 9-10 of the unit packet.
• River Boat Problems - an online animation and accompanying discussion of the motion of a river boat in the presence of a current.
• Parabolic Motion - an online animation which explains why the trajectory of a projectile is parabolic.
• The Monkey and The Zookeeper - an online animation of that popular demonstration; if you thought the demonstration had a five-star rating, then you should see the animation.
• Horizontally Launched Projectiles - an online animation and a critical discussion of the conceptual nature of a projectile launched horizontally from an elevated position.
• Non-Horizontally Launched Projectiles - an online animation and a critical discussion of the conceptual nature of a projectile launched at an angle to the horizontal.
• The Plane and The Package - an online animation and accompanying discussion that parallels the in class discussion of the laser disc segment.
• The Truck and The Ball - an online animation and accompanying discussion that parallels the in class discussion of the laser disc segment about the "snowmobile and the flare."
• Direction of a Vector, Adding Vectors, and Resolving Vectors - check out Lesson 1 of Unit 3 at The Physics Classroom.
• The Conceptual and Numerical Nature of Projectiles - check out Lesson 2 of Unit 3 at The Physics Classroom.
