Ch 39: CEOE Middle Level Science: Newton's Laws of Motion

About This Chapter

This chapter provides lessons on the subject of Newton's laws of motion. It can help aspiring teachers who are studying for the Certification Examinations for Oklahoma Educators (CEOE) for Middle Level Science.

CEOE Middle Level Science: Newton's Laws of Motion - Chapter Summary

You probably remember Newton came up with more than one law of motion, but can you demonstrate competency about such to the state? Our lessons, quizzes and other study aids in this chapter cover such subject matter as:

  • Newton's First Law of Motion with examples
  • Newton's Second Law of Motion force related to acceleration
  • Newton's Third Law of Motion with examples
  • Mass, weight and gravity per Newton
  • Definition and formula for acceleration
  • Formulas for speed and velocity
  • How mechanics effect objects
  • Definition and math of uniform circular motion
  • Definition of Newton's Law of Gravitation with examples
  • Differences and calculations of mass and weight
  • Differences between mass and inertia
  • Definition of projectile motion with examples and practice problems

Short and engaging videos instruct you while you read along using the provided transcripts. A quiz at the end tests your comprehension of the material in the video and, if you missed anything, you can use our clever timeline feature to go to the point in the lesson that contains the answer to the quiz question.

Newton's First Law of Motion: Examples of the Effect of Force on Motion

1. Newton's First Law of Motion: Examples of the Effect of Force on Motion

This lesson describes Newton's first law of motion, also known as the law of inertia. The interaction between force and motion is explained. Several examples are used to discuss the implications of this law on earth and in space.

Newton's Second Law of Motion: The Relationship Between Force and Acceleration

2. Newton's Second Law of Motion: The Relationship Between Force and Acceleration

This lesson defines Newton's second law of motion. Examples are used to illustrate how unbalanced forces cause objects to accelerate. The examples are used to practice calculating acceleration and force for objects in motion.

Newton's Third Law of Motion: Examples of the Relationship Between Two Forces

3. Newton's Third Law of Motion: Examples of the Relationship Between Two Forces

This lesson describes Newton's third law of motion. Examples are provided to illustrate how interacting objects experience forces. The lesson explains how objects accelerate as a result of force. Applications of Newton's third law are illustrated in nature, machines, and space.

Newton's Laws and Weight, Mass & Gravity

4. Newton's Laws and Weight, Mass & Gravity

Did you know that mass and weight are not the same? This lesson describes the difference between the two as well as the effect of gravity on weight. Examples are used to teach you how to calculate weight based on mass and acceleration of gravity.

What is Acceleration? - Definition and Formula

5. What is Acceleration? - Definition and Formula

This lesson describes the difference between speed, velocity and acceleration. Examples are used to help you understand the concept of acceleration and learn to calculate acceleration with a mathematical formula.

Speed and Velocity: Concepts and Formulas

6. Speed and Velocity: Concepts and Formulas

Did you know that an object's speed and velocity may not be the same? This lesson describes the concepts of speed and velocity relating to objects in motion. We'll look at a specific example to help learn how to calculate both speed and velocity.

Implications of Mechanics on Objects

7. Implications of Mechanics on Objects

Forces act on objects causing them to move. Mechanics is the field of science designated to the study of moving objects. This lesson describes how forces act on objects resulting in motion. Examples are used to describe how forces interact resulting in both simple and complex movement.

Uniform Circular Motion: Definition & Mathematics

8. Uniform Circular Motion: Definition & Mathematics

After watching this lesson, you will be able to explain what uniform circular motion is, in terms of both acceleration and forces. You will also be able to use equations for centripetal force and acceleration to solve problems. A short quiz will follow.

Newton's Law of Gravitation: Definition & Examples

9. Newton's Law of Gravitation: Definition & Examples

This lesson explains how gravity works mathematically and teaches you how to use Newton's Law of Gravitation to solve problems. A short quiz will follow.

Mass and Weight: Differences and Calculations

10. Mass and Weight: Differences and Calculations

We often talk about mass and weight as if they are the same. While they are proportional to each other, they are not, in fact, the same. In this video lesson, you will learn to distinguish between the two, as well as convert one to the other.

Distinguishing Between Inertia and Mass

11. Distinguishing Between Inertia and Mass

Mass and inertia are both related to the amount of matter an object has, but they aren't exactly the same thing. In this video lesson, you'll see how mass affects an object's inertia, which in turn affects that object's motion.

Projectile Motion: Definition and Examples

12. Projectile Motion: Definition and Examples

A projectile is any object that is given an initial velocity and then follows a path determined entirely by gravity. In this lesson, we will introduce projectile motion and touch on a few key facts to keep in mind when working through these problems.

Projectile Motion Practice Problems

13. Projectile Motion Practice Problems

After watching this video lesson, you will know how to use the sets of equations that are used to solve projectile motion problems. Learn how to manipulate them to find the answer you need.

State of Motion and Velocity

14. State of Motion and Velocity

An object's state of motion describes how it is moving. But there are many ways we can describe motion, such as speed and velocity. This motion is relative to other objects around it, such as the earth, the sun, and even other stars in our galaxy.
