Objectives of the GACE Physics: Equilibrium & Elasticity Chapter

Both Test I and II of the GACE assessments will address your knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts based on a 6-12th-grade comprehension level of physics in order to determine your ability to teach middle or high school science courses in the state of Georgia. Each test lasts between two and two and a half hours, and both consist of 60 selected-response questions. The topics in this chapter will confirm and enhance your existing knowledge while introducing you to new or unfamiliar concepts tested on the GACE Physics assessments.

Equilibrium and elasticity concepts appear in the Mechanics subarea. Our self-assessment quizzes provided at the end of every lesson will determine how well you can recall the information covered on the exam and also give you insight to the types of questions you'll actually see on test day.
