Ch 9: Motion and Newton's Laws

If you need to review the relationship between force and motion, check out this chapter's lessons on topics including net force and action-reaction force pairs. You'll also get another chance to study uniform circular motion and periodic motion.

Motion and Newton's Laws - Chapter Summary

Take a look at the effects of force on motion with these short video lessons. You'll find several covering the differences between inertia, mass, and weight as well as speed and velocity. You can also revisit the types of contact and non-contact forces before jumping into lessons on the relationship between the net force acting on an object, its mass, and its acceleration. Instructors walk you through calculations involving these variables and apply Newton's laws to the study of uniform circular motion, periodic motion, and objects in free fall. Altogether, lessons in this chapter can help you review the following topics:

• Newton's laws of motion
• Mass and weight
• Speed and acceleration
• Velocity
• Types of forces
• Free fall motion
• Periodic motion
• Uniform circular motion

If you have around ten minutes of free time and a mobile device, you can get one step closer to mastering these classical mechanics topics. Our online lessons break up key physics concepts into 5-10-minute videos that make it easy to manage your study time. You can also read the transcripts and take short multiple-choice quizzes to track your progress.
