About the Course

Covering the basic physics that apply to roping systems, Advanced Rigging Physics 1: Vectors & Mechanical Advantage enables technicians to develop a deeper understanding and a sound approach to problem-solving. Considering force and tension as vectors and finding creative ways to apply these in the field makes it so much easier to define resultants and calculate mechanical advantage in complex systems.
