Mechanics:Connected Particles Interactive Activity

An interactive Excel program demonstrating Newton’s second law in solving connected particles problems. Problems can be generated randomly or input by the user and the solution is revealed stage by stage. Ideal for use with a projector and mini whiteboards (if available) or can be used for individual practice/revision. You will need to enable macros to run the program (click on tools\macro\security and set to medium or low, then restart Excel). If in doubt, consult your IT technician. If you use this resource, please take the time to review it. Any comments will be carefully noted
