# Modelling Forces for Connected Particles

Students learn how to resolve forces in connected particle systems, focusing on tension and acceleration.

Later, as learning progresses, they apply these concepts to particles on inclined planes, factoring in friction and component forces.

The lesson unfolds in three parts: first, calculating the acceleration and tension in a two-block system on an incline; second, finding acceleration given a constant force on connected particles; third, deducing the friction coefficient for particles on different inclines.
