ABSTRACT. One of the real challenges in education is that education should be able to
produce human resources that have full competence such as mastery of technology, and
learning media. With the learning media, learners become more active, creative and
innovative. In addition, the learning media serves to describe a natural phenomenon that is
still abstract. One of the material physics that is still difficult to understand is the material
of Newton’s second law. Therefore, to facilitate learners in understanding this material, it
takes an interactive learning media. This study aims to test the feasibility of smart pulley
tools as a medium to enhance students' understanding of Newton's second law material.
The method used in research is research and development. Research data were obtained
using pretest, posttest, and questionnaire of the feasibility test of the tool. Research subjects
are student of Physics Education at semester V in UIN Sunan Gunung Djati Bandung and
students of MAN 2 Bandung at academic year 2016/2017. The results showed that the
highest average understanding of learners' concepts after using the smart pulley tool is
90.48 and the lowest is 85.71. The results of this study can be used as a basis for developing
smart pulley practicum tool as a supporting medium of concept understanding on Newton’s
second law material.
Keywords: learning media, smart pulley tools

observations, and their experience to express media can be used as an intermediary in the
abstract-looking concepts with their own learning of physics, such as props and
language. Thus, by investigating what practicum tools [2]
