About This Chapter
CEOE Physical Science: Motion in One Dimension - Chapter Summary
This chapter is designed to simplify the process of preparing for the CEOE Physical Science assessment by giving you an exclusive look at exam topics. Use the lessons to get reacquainted with motion in one dimension. In no time, you will be ready to:
- Describe the state of motion and velocity
- Explain the differences between speed and velocity
- Differentiate between velocity and time when determining displacement of an object
- Discuss uniformly-accelerated motion and the big 5 kinematics equations
- Share details about air resistance and free fall
Instructors in the lessons are subject matter experts with a wealth of information on motion in one dimension. They provide you with the definitions, equations and examples you need to competently answer questions on the exam.
CEOE Physical Science: Motion in One Dimension Chapter Objectives
The Certification Examinations for Oklahoma Educators (CEOE) Physical Science assessment gauges educators' readiness to secure the certification needed to teach in Oklahoma classrooms. It consists of 80 selected-response questions and 1 constructed-response question that are broken into three subareas. Topics covered in this chapter are found in the motion, forces and energy subarea, which constitutes about 32% of the entire test.
Explore the lessons in this chapter to better understand motion in one dimension, then test what you've reviewed with short quizzes and a chapter exam. If you want to revisit a specific portion of any video lesson, use timelines with video tags that allow you to skip to key topics. If you have questions about topics in the lesson, don't hesitate to submit them to our experts.
1. 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.
2. Speed and Velocity: Difference and Examples
Is it possible to drive with a speed of 100 mph but a velocity of 0? In this lesson, we will examine the difference between speed and velocity and use that information to answer this question.
3. Velocity vs. Time: Determining Displacement of an Object
There is a lot of information you can determine by looking at a velocity vs. time graph. In this lesson, we will use a little geometry to calculate the displacement of the object represented by the graph.
4. Uniformly-Accelerated Motion and the Big Five Kinematics Equations
In this lesson, we will begin to solve problems that combine position, displacement, velocity, and acceleration. I will introduce the Big Five Equations to help you on your way.
5. Air Resistance and Free Fall
Through experiments by Galileo and Newton, we can understand why all objects in free-fall experience the same acceleration, ''g''. We can also see why air resistance affects a falling object's velocity and how this can lead to a falling object reaching a terminal velocity.
6. Free Fall Physics Practice Problems
In this lesson, we will dive into doing calculations involving free falling objects. We will begin with a few helpful tips to get started before working through a couple of example problems.
