Ch 4: AP Physics C: Newton's First Law of Motion

Let us help you review the difference between balanced and unbalanced forces. These informative short videos lessons can help you prepare for of questions on Newton's First Law of Motion on the AP Physics C - Mechanics exam.

AP Physics C: Newton's First Law of Motion - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, our instructors can help you review the physics concepts of force and motion that could appear on the AP Physics C - Mechanics test. You can explore calculations, situations, and diagrams to gain a deeper understanding of Newton's First Law of Motion. After completion of the chapter, you should be able to:

• Understand the principles of Newton's First Law of Motion
• Describe the differences between mass and inertia
• List the calculations for mass and weight
• Define a state of motion and how velocity affects the state
• Identify types of forces, including balanced and unbalanced forces
• Determine the net force of an object
• Use free-body diagrams to explain magnitude and direction

Our experienced instructors use a wide variety of tools to help you boost your understanding of laws of motion. There are self-assessment quizzes you can take after viewing the after our short, engaging video lessons to test you on the information you have learned and make sure you are ready for the AP Physics C - Mechanics exam. Lesson transcripts and video tags are also available so you can jump to the main points of the videos to help you access the information quickly.
