Overview of Newton's First Law of Motion

1. Overview of Newton's First Law of Motion

Ever cursed the fact that your car wouldn't come to a stop as quickly as you might wish? Or, wonder how you get the dirt off your shoes when you kick them against a post? Well, wonder no more! Newton's first law of motion explains it all!

Overview of Force & Free-Body Diagrams

2. Overview of Force & Free-Body Diagrams

After completing this lesson, you will be able to explain what a free-body force diagram is, some of the rules associated with them, and what needs to be considered when drawing these diagrams.

Overview of Newton's Second Law of Motion

3. Overview of Newton's Second Law of Motion

Have you ever had to push a broken-down car? Hopefully, the answer is no but if you have, you definitely know that the lighter the car, the easier the job. In this lesson, we learn why that is the case.

Overview of Newton's Third Law of Motion

4. Overview of Newton's Third Law of Motion

Ever felt the recoil of a paintball gun? Or, hurt your hand after hitting a wall? Surely you've breathed, right? In this lesson, we explain Newton's third law of motion, which makes all of those possible.

Measuring Mass & Weight With Newton's Laws

5. Measuring Mass & Weight With Newton's Laws

If you thought that learning Newton's Laws of Motions was only useful to pass a physics test, think again! In this lesson, we'll learn how to use them to calculate mass and weight, two related but different concepts.

Inclined Planes in Physics: Definition, Facts, and Examples

6. Inclined Planes in Physics: Definition, Facts, and Examples

If an object is not horizontal to the ground, it may be on an inclined plane. We need to adjust both the calculations and the free-body diagram when determining the net force on an object on an inclined plane. Learn how in this lesson.

Newton's Second Law & Uniform Circular Motion

7. Newton's Second Law & Uniform Circular Motion

Sure, Newton's Second Law of Motion works well in one dimension, but what happens when you put it on a curve? In this lesson, we'll see how the Second Law applies with respect to Uniform Circular Motion.
