# Ch 10: Force, Motion, and Newton's Laws

This chapter on the fundamentals of gravity, weight and mass can help you in preparing for a physical science exam or offer extra assistance in learning these topics for class or for fun. Our enjoyable lessons on force, motion and Newton's laws will help you obtain your goals.

## Force, Motion and Newton's Laws - Chapter Summary

Isaac Newton's laws of motion describe the relationship between a body and the forces that act upon it. In the lessons in this chapter, expert instructors discuss Newton's laws and use real-world examples to describe the motion of the body in response to outside forces. You will explore gravity, weight, and mass. Other lessons examine devices that work because of Newton's laws, such as the pulley and inclined plane. If you struggle with any of these topics, our instructors will be here to answer any questions you have about the material. This chapter can help you:

• Understand Newton's three laws of motion
• Explain Newton's laws on weight, mass and gravity
• Describe differences between inertia and mass
• Explore how mass and weight are calculated
• Understand state of motion
• Name types of force
