D: Vector Dynamics (Two-Dimensional Dynamics)

It is expected that students will use the concepts of two-dimensional dynamics to analyze common
situations.

It is expected that students will:

D1.  resolve a force into two orthogonal components
D2.  determine the magnitude and direction of a force given its two orthogonal components
D3.  determine the net force from two or more forces
D4.  construct free-body diagrams for objects in various situations
D5.  use free-body diagrams to solve problems involving balanced or unbalanced forces
D6.  solve problems involving objects on inclines
