Watch this webinar to learn how free body diagrams are used in MCAT physics questions. You will review how to draw free body diagrams for simple and complex systems of masses, as well as how to set up equations correctly to calculate tension and acceleration.
Free Body Diagrams
At a glance
Draw free body diagrams for simple and complex systems of masses
Calculate tension and acceleration from setting up the correct set of equations
How free body diagrams can be used for machines, such as inclined planes, pulleys, and levers
That Fnet is the summation of all forces acting on an object
On the MCAT
Most free body diagram questions will be discrete or pseudo-discrete questions
These types of questions are not necessarily high yield, but often cause distress for test takers, so we like to think of them as high stakes
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
