This 10-slide PowerPoint introduces students to the concepts of force and force diagrams. More specifically, the topics include the definition of force, field versus contact forces, types of forces by name, labeling forces, force diagrams, and free body diagrams. This PowerPoint introduces these concepts in a conceptual manner. Calculations are not addressed until the next PowerPoint.
This presentation was created for use in a first-year physics course, although it could also easily be used in a physical science course. This product will be downloaded as a zipped folder. That way, you will receive a PowerPoint (pptx) version of the file as well as a PDF version of the file.
