An overview of the different types of forces
An explanation of how we draw and represent forces in a free body diagram
Calculation of resultant forces and acceleration
Laura LewisHost: Laura studied at Royal Holloway University of London and the Open University. She is passionate about science communication and has presented talks about Exoplanets at Oxford University and Imperial College London.

In this class we will look at the different types of forces and how we can represent forces on the object with a free body diagram.  We will then calculate the resultant force on the object and the acceleration as a result.  

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
