comment Atwood machine problem
The impulse might have deformed the pulley a bit(compressed it), like an inelastic collision. That deformation will produce heat, which leads to loss of mechanical energy.

comment Constant Velocity 'Force'?
Why do you feel it is "actually not a force"? Is it because you feel the force doesn't cause any acceleration to the body it hits? That is not because there is no force, but because all the forces acting on that body cancel out.

comment Period of small oscillations
Given small vertical oscillations, you can assume the motion to be simple harmonic. Then the time period would be given by $2\pi/\omega$.

comment Determine if an object is in orbit
@MrUniverse, If you want to plot a perfect trajectory of an object under influence of multiple massive bodies, you'll have to solve the kinematical equations using newtonian gravity, which is possible(I think) but tough and no general solution usually exists. So you will have to compute the trajectory for every case separately.

comment Determine if an object is in orbit
@dmckee, you can make it a multibody situation by making some assumptions, like multiple point like satellites(negligible mass) orbiting around a massive body(earth). In that case you can neglect the gravitational effect of the satellites on each other, and the program can still be a very useful real world simulation.

comment Where does the extra force generated by a lever come from?
Now it does matter how long the lever is because the force of the fulcrum cannot make the lever rotate(it is applying torque in the wrong direction), so you need the 1lb of your finger to make the lever rotate, and so you need a long enough lever to make 1lb sufficient.

comment Where does the extra force generated by a lever come from?
Well its like, the lever supports the weight of the load, the fulcrum supports the total force the lever applies downward(force you exert from your hand + weight of the load, i.e. total force of lever + load system), and the ground likewise supports the force fulcrum exerts downward.

comment Where does the extra force generated by a lever come from?
What does "consistently have the same impact mean"? Anyway if you want to look at the forces on the load only, the lever will exert a normal force upward on the load, which in turn will create tension in the lever. So if you use a heavy enough load, the lever can snap apart
