# Ch 4: Laws of Motion Overview

Watch video lessons to review the details of various laws of motion. Study examples and illustrations and learn term definitions, formulas and equations relating to inertia, force, friction and impulse. These lessons can help you prepare for an exam, complete a homework assignment or catch up on topics you may have missed in class.

## Laws of Motion Overview - Chapter Summary

What are Newton's laws of motion? What are the different types of forces? How is impulse calculated? You'll find answers to these questions and more when you use the lessons in this chapter. You'll review how to apply formulas relating to inertia, friction, acceleration and momentum as well as the relationship between force and motion. Once you have completed this chapter, you should be able to do the following:

• List the different types of forces
• Define inertia and use the related formula
• Provide details about Newton's first, second and third laws of motion
• Understand examples of and calculate impulse
• Apply the formula for conservation of linear momentum
• Differentiate between balanced and unbalanced forces
• Explain friction and its sources
• Use equations to solve problems relating to centripetal force and uniform circular motion

Taught by experienced science educators, these video lessons provide simple overviews of complex laws, formulas and equations that make it easy and fun to learn about motion. Videos are accessible on any device 24/7, so you can study at your convenience. Demonstrate your full understanding of this material by taking self-assessment quizzes at the end of each lesson.
