1.3.1 Introduction Multiple forces

Course subject(s) Module 1: Mechanics

Now that you have learned how a force works and how to do calculations with a force, it is time to expand our theory. What will happen if multiple forces work on a single object simultaneously? This is important to understand, because in reality there is rarely just one force at play. To introduce this topic we will consider forces like gravity, normal forces, tension and friction.
