In this article I would discuss what are free body diagrams and how to make one. Free body digrams are of immense importance when one want to study physics. You will find great deal of their usage while studying mechanics and tou can hey have equal inportance when it comes to other branches of physics. However i will discuss their usage and construction in context to mechanics.
We often comes across the problems in mechanics where we need to apply the law of conservation of energy where gravitational potential energy or gravity is involved . For solving such problems you can consider the following problem solving strategy,
A non inertial Frame of Refrence is the frame of refrence which is having acceleration a. Example Free Falling elevator
Newtons law are valid in inertial frame of refrence only. We cannot apply them as it is in non inertial frame of refrence as it left out the acceleration of the object because of the frame of refrence.
Let me provide simple example to illustrate this.
A) Normal Force: When we put a book on a table ,the molecules of the book exert downward forces on the molecules of the table.The molecules composing the upper layer of the tabletop move downward until the repulsion of the molecules below balances the forces applied by the book.

This article is about in-depth explanation of newton’s third law of motion. Here in this article I presume that you have a introduction of Newtons first law of motion and Newton’s second law of motion. Now Newtons first law and second law of motion deals with the effect of forces when they acts on a body. First law is about the change in the velocity of the body on the application of unbalanced forces and second law is gives the exact amount of the force needed to produce a given acceleration.
Circular motion is a very important concept in physics. Here in this page I would like to go through the concept of circular motion. You encounter circular motion in your day to day life. Many rides in amusement parks undergoes circular motion. Curves on highway are part of a circle and cars making a tun undergoes circular motion. Merry-go-Rounds in playgrounds offer further examples of uniform circular motion. Now let us learn more about circular motion.
