What Will I Learn?

- Calculate torque correctly and easily for physics problems
- Draw accurate free body diagrams for problems involving torque
- Write the net torque equation correctly so you can solve for unknown values

Requirements

- Before starting this course, students will need to understand vectors well enough to calculate vector components and magnitudes, and use geometry and trigonometry to find angles between vectors.

Description

This course teaches introductory physics students how to calculate torque and how to set up free body diagrams and solve problems involving torque. Torque is one of the trickiest concepts in introductory physics, and it is quite common for students to stumble with it at first.

This course is designed to teach you the fundamentals as quickly as possible. Using short-and-sweet videos, this course breaks torque skills into bite-sized chunks and gives lots of practice with detailed examples and rapid-fire calculations in which you pause the video to try the problem and then resume to see how you did. You can save time by using this interactivity to master torque in one shot, and you can also pick and choose individual topics to review specific skills or even speed up or slow down each video to help you understand it better.

The vast majority of this course is video. There is also a PDF worksheet that you may optionally print out to help you understand some hands-on concepts.

Before taking this course, students should understand vectors, especially vector components. It can help if students already know how to use geometry and trigonometry to find angles between lines, although this is demonstrated in many examples.

The goal of this course is to give you the benefits of a private tutor at a fraction of the cost. This course is perfect for students who need to catch up with their class on their own time, who don't learn well by reading their textbook, or who want to learn tricks and techniques to master torque faster and easier than studying on their own.

Who is the target audience?

- This course is for physics students who are currently taking a physics course. It is ideal for students who need help understanding torque but don't have the time or financial resources to hire a private tutor. This course will help if you don't understand your physics professor or you have a busy schedule and miss some lectures.
