Ch 27: ILTS Biology: Newton's Laws & Motion

About This Chapter

Use these lessons to refresh your understanding of Newton's laws of motion. Go through their meanings and uses as you study for the ILTS Biology exam. Our video lessons, quizzes and other learning aids can help you answer these types of exam questions.

ILTS Biology: Newton's Laws & Motion - Chapter Summary

Let us guide you in reviewing for questions on Newton's laws and their applications as you prepare for the ILTS Biology exam. Our video lessons and quizzes permit you to prepare for questions on topics that include:

  • Newton's laws of motion and what they mean
  • Force and free-body diagrams
  • Newton's laws and measuring mass and weight
  • Inclined planes
  • Uniform circular motion

We provide a variety of ways to help you prepare for the ILTS Biology exam, including a dashboard feature that lets you monitor your studying. These video lessons are available anytime on a computer or mobile device. Lesson quizzes, chapter tests and a final course exam help you assess your learning, and there's even an ask-an-expert message board so you can get help with questions you may have.

ILTS Biology: Newton's Laws & Motion Chapter Objectives

Illinois requires passing the ILTS Biology exam as a condition for teaching the subject. The exam contains 125 questions categorized into six subareas. Questions on the material covered in this chapter are in the Physical Science subarea.

All the exam questions are in multiple-choice form. This chapter's quiz questions are presented in the same form. In addition to giving you experience answering questions in the format you'll see on the exam, these brief quizzes show you where your knowledge is lacking. The answer key includes links back to the lesson video, so if you miss a question, you can jump right back there for review.

Overview of Newton's First Law of Motion

1. Overview of Newton's First Law of Motion

Ever cursed the fact that your car wouldn't come to a stop as quickly as you might wish? Or, wonder how you get the dirt off your shoes when you kick them against a post? Well, wonder no more! Newton's first law of motion explains it all!

Overview of Force & Free-Body Diagrams

2. Overview of Force & Free-Body Diagrams

After completing this lesson, you will be able to explain what a free-body force diagram is, some of the rules associated with them, and what needs to be considered when drawing these diagrams.

Overview of Newton's Second Law of Motion

3. Overview of Newton's Second Law of Motion

Have you ever had to push a broken-down car? Hopefully, the answer is no but if you have, you definitely know that the lighter the car, the easier the job. In this lesson, we learn why that is the case.

Overview of Newton's Third Law of Motion

4. Overview of Newton's Third Law of Motion

Ever felt the recoil of a paintball gun? Or, hurt your hand after hitting a wall? Surely you've breathed, right? In this lesson, we explain Newton's third law of motion, which makes all of those possible.

Measuring Mass & Weight With Newton's Laws

5. Measuring Mass & Weight With Newton's Laws

If you thought that learning Newton's Laws of Motions was only useful to pass a physics test, think again! In this lesson, we'll learn how to use them to calculate mass and weight, two related but different concepts.

Inclined Planes in Physics: Definition, Facts, and Examples

6. Inclined Planes in Physics: Definition, Facts, and Examples

If an object is not horizontal to the ground, it may be on an inclined plane. We need to adjust both the calculations and the free-body diagram when determining the net force on an object on an inclined plane. Learn how in this lesson.

Uniform Circular Motion: Definition & Mathematics

7. Uniform Circular Motion: Definition & Mathematics

After watching this lesson, you will be able to explain what uniform circular motion is, in terms of both acceleration and forces. You will also be able to use equations for centripetal force and acceleration to solve problems. A short quiz will follow.
