## Praxis Biology & General Science: Physics Review: Mechanics - Chapter Summary

With our lessons, you can review the physics and mechanics topics covered by the Praxis exam, including Newton's laws and the implications of mechanics theory. Video instructors help you understand all the theories, names, important principles, and scientific terminology to make each lesson easy to remember and apply. Lessons in this chapter include:

• Speed and Velocity: Concepts and Formulas
• What is Acceleration? - Definition and Formula
• Implications of Mechanics on Objects
• Newton's First Law of Motion: Examples of the Effect of Force on Motion
• Newton's Second Law of Motion: The Relationship Between Force and Acceleration
• Newton's Third Law of Motion: Examples of the Relationship Between Two Forces
• Newton's Laws and Weight, Mass & Gravity

After watching our short, fun videos, be sure to take the brief multiple-choice quizzes to gauge your understanding of the material. Accompanying transcripts enable you to read along with the videos.

### Praxis Biology & General Science: Objectives

The Praxis Biology & General Science exam is used to determine your readiness to be licensed as a science or biology teacher in your state. Please note that the exact requirements for teacher licensing - including the minimum score you'll need to be eligible - vary by state. The test looks at your ability to:

• Understand the connections between science, technology, and applications in society
• Interpret scientific data collected in the field and observed in the laboratory
• Apply scientific principles and theories to common scenarios

The Biology & General Science test consists of 120 multiple-choice questions. Physics accounts for about ten percent of the exam, or about 12 questions. The test takes about two hours to complete.
