This interactive tutorial explains how to approach two-body force problems involving pulleys and strings. Several examples are presented with simple explanations and informative graphics to provide students with a solid grasp of problem solving methods. Related student and teacher resources are included, and a "Check Your Understanding" section allows students to self-assess their learning.

This is part of The Physics Classroom Tutorial series, a set of instructional pages aimed at introductory physics students looking for a better grasp of basic concepts.
