# Ch 8: Equilibrium and Elasticity

## Equilibrium and Elasticity - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

Equilibrium and elasticity are key introductory concepts in physics. In this series of lessons, you'll learn about different types of equilibrium and their characteristics. You'll then be able to apply this knowledge to understanding how simple machines work, how factors like gravity affect equilibrium and elasticity and how to solve problems where you'll need to measure equilibrium and elasticity. In these lessons, you'll learn things like:

• Types of equilibrium
• Types of stability
• Types of simple machines
• How to solve equations that include calculating equilibrium and elasticity

Video Objective
