Principles of rock mechanics
The principles of rock mechancis explains the fundamental concepts of continuum mechanics and rheology as applied in studies of rock deformation. A thorough understanding of rock behavior is essential for strategic planning in the petroleum and mining industry, in construction operation, and in locating subsurface repositories. The formation of geological structures or rock deformation patterns, studied by geodynamicists and tectonicians, is, also governed by the mechanical principles outlined i

Interactive simulation demonstrating calculation of area of a rectangle
Angle Measures in Circles Students are instructed to find the value of x, using the circle shown on the screen. The measure of an angle formed by two chords that intersect inside a circle is equal to half the sum of the measures of the intercepted arcs. Video goes through the problem to solve for x. Instructor writes down the equation: x = ½ (60 + 110) and then solves the equation. Good quality video for grade five and up. (01:35
