The Physics of Swinging a Mass on a String for Fun
How to Calculate Pendulum Force | Sciencing
Occasionally there are physics lab demonstrations that I think are pretty awesome but that my students just think are "meh. The basic idea in this demo, which I used in my class at Southeastern Louisiana University, is to swing a mass around in a horizontal circle. But wait! There's a cooler part: By running the string through a vertical tube and attaching it to another mass, we can control the tension in the string.
How to Calculate the Weight of a Load Before an Overhead Lift
In the field of physics, which includes the study of material objects' interactions with other objects and their surroundings, a weight is considered a force. If the load is not moving, that acceleration turns into gravitational acceleration, g. Write down the mass of the hanging load.
