About This Quiz & Worksheet

Though the different classifications of equilibrium are relatively simple to grasp, there is a lot of information that can be learned about them. This quiz/worksheet focuses on examples and different components of each type.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

These assessments will test your understanding of:

  • Velocity's relationship with the two types of equilibrium
  • External properties of translational and rotational equilibrium
  • Examples of translational and rotational equilibrium

Skills Practiced

  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as translational and rotational motion
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the motion of objects
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about types of motion in a different light
