Pulley exercise generator (Pulleys).


Description: Physics (dynamics) trainer (exercise generator), dealing with pulleys. The user may choose between 15 pulley systems, including the Atwood machine, pulleys, moving a block horizontally or on an incline, two-pulley horizontal or vertical systems. Kinetic friction is ignored in some exercises, but not in others. In some cases, the mass of the pulley has also to be considered. By allowing the user, which pulley systems the questions will be about, not only makes it possible to adapt the exercises to the user's physics knowledge, but also allows her to train herself with those exercises, where she knows to have difficulties with.

To do: In the actual version 1.0, only 14 of the 15 pulley systems are implemented...

Free Pascal features: Multiple forms applications. Passing values between forms. Number sub- and superscripts.
