Problem Solving Using Physics Examples

Want a free copy of PTC Mathcad Express? Download your copy today.

We introduce new features of PTC Mathcad within the context of math and science problems. You will follow step-by-step instructions and actually try out the new concepts within Mathcad. You may want to simply read through the Tutorial, but spending a bit more time working through some of the exercises and problems will help you fully understand how to best use PTC Mathcad to solve your own problems.

Worksheets marked with use PTC Mathcad premium features, otherwise they are Express compatible. All worksheets created in PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0.

Chapter | Worksheet Name | Description |
---|---|---|

Mathcad Basics | Mathcad Basics - Tutorial | In this chapter, you will learn to do simple calculations, write text, and organize your work into a coherent solution. |

Mathcad Basics - Exercises | In this section, we will introduce another way of selecting regions, how to edit text, and where to find trigonometric functions. | |

Mathcad Basics - Problems | You are now ready to try some problems on your own. In all Problem sections, you will work out problems so that you can test your new abilities with Mathcad. | |

Variables and Units | Variables and Units - Tutorial | In this chapter, you will learn Mathcad skills that will totally change the way you approach problems. |

Variables and Units - Exercises | In the exercises that follow you will practice using variables instead of the values they represent. | |

Variables and Units of Measurement | You are now ready to try some problems on your own. In all Problem sections, you will work out problems so that you can test your new abilities with Mathcad. | |

Solving Equations | Solving Equations - Tutorial | In this chapter, we will explore how Mathcad can be used to help you manipulate and solve equations. You will learn that Mathcad can solve an equation for any variable, substitute an expression into an equation, and even solve multiple equations for several variables simultaneously. |

Solving Equations - Exercises | In this exercise section you will practice solving equations with the methods you learned in the Tutorial to solve complex problems involving more than one equation. | |

Solving Equations - Problems | As you work on the problems in this section, try to use all the Mathcad features you have learned so far and practice the problem-solving strategies we have advised along the way. | |

Solving Equations - Supplemental Exercises | In this supplemental section there is an exercise to provide more practice with the skills you learned about in the Tutorial and the first half of the exercises in this section. | |

Solving Equations - Supplemental Problems | In this supplemental section there is another problem that uses the symbolic equal sign and commands that you learned about in the Tutorial and the Exercises. | |

Graphing | Graphing - Tutorial | In this Tutorial, you will learn how to graph a function in the context of an example. |

Graphing - Exercises | With these Exercises, we will practice graphing functions, but you will also learn how to format your graphs. Specially, we will talk about adding markers to a graph, changing the appearance of a curve, and adding a legend or title. | |

Graphs - Problems | Making graphs takes practice, so there are three problems in this section. | |

Advanced Problem Solving | Advanced Problem Solving - Tutorial | In this chapter, we are not going to teach many new features of Mathcad. You have learned quite a bit so far and now we want to show you how Mathcad can be used to understand the concepts of a problem more completely. |

Advanced Problem Solving - Exercises | The exercise that follows involves more difficult physics than we have covered in previous sections, and you will notice that the depth of our analysis increases as well. | |

Advanced Problem Solving - Problems | This section provides an opportunity to apply the new problem-solving skills you have learned. | |

Advanced Problem Solving - Supplemental Exercise | In this supplemental section there is an exercise to provide more practice with the skills you learned about. | |

Data Analysis | Data Analysis - Tutorial | In this chapter we cover some tools that are used in all areas of science: the tools of data analysis. |

Data Analysis - Exercises | In this section, we will deal with the more complicated problem of analyzing two sets of data points that are related in some way. We will graph the data sets to look at the relationship, try out a theoretical model, and then summarize our results. | |

Data Analysis - Problems | This section contains two closely related problems that deal with data analysis. You will need to use descriptive statistics, graph data, and use linear regression to fit a straight line to the data. | |

Advanced Problem Solving | Final Problem - The Spring Constant | In this final section, you work through several problems that all deal with the same physical system: a mass hanging from a spring. |
