You already of a Physical Text book, but I would rather not have you carry that one around.
College Physics for AP® Courses is an opensource (free) text designed to engage students in their exploration of physics and help them apply these concepts to the Advanced Placement ® test. You can visit their site to download a PDF copy or view it online. I downloaded a copy on my iPhone into iBooks (I think that did cost me $5.00) Here is a link to the portion of the book that I want you to read for this assignment: Newton's Second Law of Motion: Concept of a System Take notes in your weekly notebook and answer the Problem Exercises at the bottom. 
HW 1.13 FreeBody Diagrams (5 points)
Assigned: Monday, October 26, 2015
Due: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Due: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Freebody diagrams are diagrams used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object in a given situation. A freebody diagram is a special example of the vector diagram. The freebody diagram to the left depicts four forces acting upon the object. Objects do not necessarily always have four forces acting upon them. There will be cases in which the number of forces depicted by a freebody diagram will be one, two, or three. There is no hard and fast rule about the number of forces that must be drawn in a freebody diagram. The only rule for drawing freebody diagrams is to depict all the forces that exist for that object in the given situation.
Construct freebody diagrams in your notebook for the various situations described below.
