Julian Chua's curator insight, November 18, 2014 5:08 AM

Dance moves are translated into unique drawings; and I reckon if the data of the movement is analysed further, combined with expert opinion of the dance creativity/difficulty, there might be something quantifiable here.

Vector Free Body Diagrams Part 1 Physics Lesson - YouTube

http://www.physicseh.com/ Free simple easy to follow videos all organized on our website (Vector Free Body Diagrams Part 1 Physics Lesson TOPIC 7 HELP http://t.co/eEshRADoX9)...
Learning Futures's insight:

Parts 1 to 5 are pretty good introductory videos. The later videos which show the resolution of the applied force into components should delete the original force preferably (minor issue!) and show both components acting on the object.
