# Ch 2: AP Physics C - Newton's Laws: Homeschool Curriculum

The Newton's laws unit of this AP Physics C Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about Newton's laws of motion. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our AP Physics C Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about Newton's laws of motion. There is no faster or easier way to learn about Newton's laws. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about types of forces, friction and objects' states of motion.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Newton's laws unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Newton's Laws Unit Objectives:

• Understand force's effect on motion.
• Distinguish between mass and weight.
• Identify the difference between mass and inertia.
• Examine how an object's velocity defines its state of motion.
• Learn about the types of forces.
• Distinguish between balanced and unbalanced forces.
• Understand how a free body diagram shows the forces acting on an object.
• Calculate the net force of an object.
• Explore the relationship between force and acceleration.
• Use an equation to calculate the acceleration of an object.
• Identify individual forces acting upon an object.
• Understand the impact of air resistance on falling objects.
• Learn about the relationship between two forces.
• Relate Newton's laws to mass, weight and gravity.
• Explore examples of action-reaction force pairs.
• Define normal force.
• Examine the types of friction.
• Discover what forces act upon objects on inclined planes.
• Relate uniform circular motion with Newton's second law.
