Advanced Topics for Olympiad

Here are some quick links to videos about topics that are more likely to make appearances on the Olympiad exams than on the AP.
- air friction, horizontal
- air friction, with a second applied force (think sky diver)
- Gauss's law for gravity
- Gauss's law for gravity (inside earth)
- Non-gauss cases for gravity
- Momentum, ballistic pendulum type cases
- Moment of inertia, sticks
- Moment of inertia, disks
- Moment of inertia, where axis of rotation is not center of mass (parallel axis theorem)
- Pendulum, finding tension as it swings
- Pendulum, small-angle approximation for SHM
- SHM for springs, general
- SHM for springs, initial conditions (i.e. phase angle)
- SHM, spring and stick system oscillating through small angle
- Springs in series and parallel

Go to video page of this blog for numerous videos on all aspects of rotations.
