# Ch 5: MTEL Physics: Force & the Laws of Motion

Use the video lessons in this chapter to find out the scientific explanation of the ways in which objects move. Delve into the factors that affect movement as you get ready to take the MTEL Physics test.

## MTEL Physics: Force & the Laws of Motion - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you will explore Sir Isaac Newton's research and discover how it led to his development of the laws that explain movement. Review his experiments and learn more about force and gravity. As you prepare for the MTEL Physics test, go through the information from the video lessons in this chapter to make sure you know more about the following major topics:

• Newton's First, Second, and Third Laws of Motion
• Calculating differences in mass and weight
• Force, velocity, and acceleration
• Types of friction
• Free-body diagrams, inclined planes, net force, air resistance and free fall
• Reaction force pairs and the normal force
• Action and reaction

Our chapters are divided into short video lessons that contain the information you need to understand each topic. Not only do the videos discuss the major concepts, but the transcripts also contain figures, tables, and equations to fully explain these advanced scientific theories. If at any time you need further assistance, you can submit your questions to our team of instructors. Give yourself some extra practice for the MTEL Physics test by taking the lesson quizzes and the chapter exam.
