Investigating the Free-Body Diagram of a Stationary Object on an Inclined Plane Using Apple Watch
Dilek, Ufuk; Çaliskan, Serap
Physics Education, v52 n6 Article 065020 Nov 2017
In this study, we present an activity in which the free-body diagram of a real stationary object on an inclined plane can be examined interactively. We use an Apple Watch and a few other materials that can be accessed easily. Instead of an Apple Watch, a mobile phone or a tablet could also be used. This activity may be employed to introduce the fundamental concepts associated with free-body diagrams in classroom settings, or adapted to physics labs.
