Concurrent Forces in Equilibrium

Students use concurrent forces to establish static equilibrium. In this concurrent forces in equilibrium lesson plan, students use spring balances and hanging masses to create 3 concurrent forces. They construct force parallelograms and find the resultant of the forces and construct vector drawings to show the resultant. Students complete a lab report using their data, vector drawings and calculations.
