Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

We're going to be honest. We don't have a lot of resources that are exclusively related to the topic of friction. Most of our friction-related resources are also related to topics like Newton's second law. We've referenced some of those resources below.

Calculator Pad - Newton's Laws: Questions #11 - #30

Have problems? Try the Calculator Pad. This section of our website consists of problems sets on the various topics of Physics. You will find varying problems with answers and audio-guided solutions. It's a great way to practice solving Newton's second law problems, some of which include friction forces.


Concept Builder: Solve It! With F=ma

This Concept Builder provides great practice with solving for acceleration. There are three levels of difficulty with 2-3 unique problems at each level. Feedback to answers is immediate. The third level includes the friction force and the need to use the force of friction equation.

Minds On Physics, Part 2: Newton's Laws Module, Missions NL9

If you're serious about learning Physics, there may be no better tool than Minds On Physics. This rigorous program is available on phones and tablets and will give you the workout you need to strengthen your Physics muscles. Mission NL9 has eight different problems to challenge your skill at solving F=ma problems. Some of the problems involve friction.
