About This Chapter
MTLE Physics: Laws of Motion - Chapter Summary
Our subject matter experts created these short videos to prepare you for the MTLE Physics test. These lessons on the laws of motion will increase your competency and your ability to answer test questions on such things as:
- The effect of force on motion as outlined in Newton's first law of motion
- The relationship of force and acceleration as discussed in Newton's second law of motion
- The relationship between two forces as seen in Newton's third law of motion
- Mass, weight and gravity per Newton's laws
- The Spring Constant as defined in Hooke's Law
Study.com instructors use 5-10 minute video lessons to focus on specific aspects of the laws of motion, after which they quiz you to assess your understanding of what was just covered. If you need to refer back to the video, the convenient timeline tool allows you to go right to the section you need. You can also refer to the video transcript provided. Our course also includes feature that allows you to send a direct question to the instructor.
1. Newton's First Law of Motion: Examples of the Effect of Force on Motion
This lesson describes Newton's first law of motion, also known as the law of inertia. The interaction between force and motion is explained. Several examples are used to discuss the implications of this law on earth and in space.
2. Newton's Second Law of Motion: The Relationship Between Force and Acceleration
This lesson defines Newton's second law of motion. Examples are used to illustrate how unbalanced forces cause objects to accelerate. The examples are used to practice calculating acceleration and force for objects in motion.
3. Newton's Third Law of Motion: Examples of the Relationship Between Two Forces
This lesson describes Newton's third law of motion. Examples are provided to illustrate how interacting objects experience forces. The lesson explains how objects accelerate as a result of force. Applications of Newton's third law are illustrated in nature, machines, and space.
4. Newton's Laws and Weight, Mass & Gravity
Did you know that mass and weight are not the same? This lesson describes the difference between the two as well as the effect of gravity on weight. Examples are used to teach you how to calculate weight based on mass and acceleration of gravity.
5. Hooke's Law & the Spring Constant: Definition & Equation
After watching this video, you will be able to explain what Hooke's Law is and use the equation for Hooke's Law to solve problems. A short quiz will follow.
