Class 2 Levers: Force Input Angles

Class 2 Levers: Force Input Angles

This interactive presentation, created by authors James Bourassa and John Rosz, explains how the input of force reacts with lever systems. The authors address the physics behind levers, and how when proper angles are used in design the effective force increases greatly. The format of the lesson is akin to an animated PowerPoint presentation. Each slide is filled with flash animations lined with the mathematical formulas behind the physics of the problem. Following the lesson is made easier because of the thoroughness of each individual slide. This is a great resource for either a student or educator interested in either electromechanical engineering or just simply physics.
