# Ch 4: FTCE Physics: Mechanics

Let us teach you about the principles and concepts underlying mechanics. The video lessons and self-assessment quizzes provide information and examples to help you correctly answer related questions on the FTCE Physics test.

## FTCE Physics: Mechanics - Chapter Summary

Utilize these physics lessons to improve your comprehension of mechanics and help you study for the FTCE Physics exam. To support your understanding of how to answer related questions on the test, these lessons cover information on topics including:

• Knowing how to graph slopes, tangents, and other basic functions
• Understanding the respective formulas for and difference between velocity and speed
• Defining and determining acceleration
• Assimilating the principles and applications of Newton's three laws of motion
• Solving problems related to the following: motions of physical systems; conservation of linear and angular momentum; the impulse-momentum theorem; orbital motion; depth, density, and pressure; and the center of mass
• Understanding the conservation of mechanical energy
• Differentiating between static and kinetic forces
• Becoming familiar with Archimedes's and Bernoulli's principles

Each of this chapter's tutorials is presented in video format and comprises brief, substantive explanations of the respective subjects, helping you absorb the information and perform well on the FTCE. Lesson summaries and text transcripts are included with every lesson.

### Objectives of the FTCE Physics: Mechanics Chapter

The state of Florida administers the FTCE Physics exam to test potential teachers' preparedness for physics teaching certification. The subjects covered in this Mechanics chapter comprise about 27% of the approximately 90-question exam. The quizzes alongside each lesson can help you determine how well you've assimilated the material and expose you to the kinds of questions the FTCE Physics exam poses.

Among the physics FTCE's exclusively multiple-choice questions are those that involve the examination of a graph, chart, or number line; those that require an answer to a direct question; and those that call for the completion of a provided sentence. Other questions are asked in response to the outline of a situation or case study.
