# Ch 8: Circular Motion and Gravitation in Physics: Help and Review

The Circular Motion and Gravitation in Physics chapter of this High School Physics Help and Review course is the simplest way to master circular motion and gravitation. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of circular motion and gravitation.

## Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering high school physics material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn about high school physics. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who have fallen behind in understanding laws relating to circular and planetary motion
• Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
• Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
• Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
• Students who need an efficient way to learn about circular motion and gravitation
• Students who struggle to understand their teachers
• Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

## How it works:

• Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
• Press play and watch the video lesson.
• Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
• Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
• Verify you're ready by completing the Circular Motion and Gravitation in Physics chapter exam.

## Why it works:

• Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
• Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
• Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Circular Motion and Gravitation in Physics chapter exam to be prepared.
• Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any circular motion and gravitation question. They're here to help!
• Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

## Students will review:

This chapter helps students review the concepts in a circular motion and gravitation unit of a standard high school physics course. Topics covered include:

• Uniform circular motion
• Speed, velocity and acceleration
• Chemical and dynamic equilibrium
• Kepler's laws of planetary motion
• Newton's law of gravitation
• Calculations of centripetal force
• Gravitational attraction of extended bodies
• Gravitational potential energy
• Periods and speeds of elliptical orbits
• Eccentricity and orbits
