Resource type Force as a Vector
This leaflet deals with forces as vectors.
Resource type Force Diagrams
This leaflet deals with force diagrams.
Resource type Forces acting at an angle - resolving forces
This leaflet explains how a force can be split into two perpendicular components.
Resource type Forces acting at an angle (with friction)
This leaflet introduces friction into the analysis of the effect of forces on bodies.
Resource type Friction
This leaflet introduces friction forces.
Resource type Motion due to gravity
This leaflet introduces gravitational force.
Resource type Newton's first law of motion
This leaflet introduces the first of the laws of motion.
Resource type Newton's second law of motion
This leaflet introduces Newton's second law of motion
Resource type Newton's third law of motion
This leaflet introduces Newton's third law of motion.
Resource type Parallel forces acting together
In this leaflet we consider the resultant force when several parallel forces act.
Resource type Particle on a slope (with friction)
This leaflet analyses particles on slopes in the presence of friction.
Resource type Particles on a slope
When resolving forces, the directions generally taken are horizontal and vertical. However, there are situations when it is better to consider other directions for resolving. This leaflet explains how this is done.
Resource type Pulleys
This leaflet considers problems involving pulleys.
Resource type Resolving forces - i, j notation
This leaflet deals with resolving forces, using the I, j notation.
Resource type Types of Force
This leaflet explains the various types of force which are commonly found when studying the motion of physical bodies.

Resource type Maths EG Teacher Interface
The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.
