#### PhysCasts: Vectors: Some Basics

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This PhysCast will go through some basics of using vectors.

#### PhysCasts: Two Connected Blocks: Using the Work-Kinetic Energy Theorem

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This PhysCast is going to analyse a problem of two connecting blocks using the work-kinetic energy theorem. A 5.0 kg block is hanging by a string connected to a 3.0 kg mass via a massless pulley. The 3.0 kg mass sits on ...

#### PhysCasts: A Ball Thrown Straight Up: 1-d Equations of Motion

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This PhysCast deals with a problem involving 1 dimensional motion. A ball is thrown straight upwards and reaches a maximum height of 5.2 m. (a) What was the ball's initial speed? (b) How long did it take for the ball to ...

#### PhysCasts: Two Masses and a Pulley: Application of Newton's 2nd Law

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This is a problem that involves the application of Newton's 2nd law of motion. Two masses, one 4.0 kg and the other 2.5 kg are connected by a light rope that runs over a pulley. The pulley is frictionless and has negligible ...

#### PhysCasts: Unit Conversions

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This PhysCast will look at converting between different sets of units. A car travels at 100 km/h. What is the speed in m/s?

#### PhysCasts: A Train Goes Past: Average Velocity and Acceleration

(Swinburne Commons, 2014)

This PhysCast has a 1 dimensional motion problem with constant acceleration. You rush on to the train station platform, but your train is already leaving. You stop and watch as two of the 8.0 m train carriages move past ...
