Detail Page

written by Aaron Titus
This page contains a set of problems that supplement Chapter 3 on non-constant forces, in the introductory textbook Matter and Interactions by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. Topics include changing forces, gravitational forces, and prediction of motion.  Each problem can be viewed separately, with solutions, or downloaded as a pdf file.

The site includes videos showing solutions to many of the problems. These can be followed with RSS or as podcasts from iTunes. Instructors are encouraged to submit their own problems and solutions to the web site. Problems must be submitted in LaTeX format; the web site provides ample support for this process.

SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE to link to an article discussing the Matter and Interactions approach in detail.
