About This Chapter
TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12: Physics Dimensions of Motion - Chapter Summary
These videos are not only effective, but also a fun way to review the physics of motion as you gear up for your TExMaT Master Science Teacher 8-12 exam. Accompanying transcripts emphasize important ideas for additional review. Lessons explore:
- Important formulas regarding speed and velocity
- Acceleration equations and examples
- Effects of displacement and distance in physics
- Velocity, momentum and impulse
- Techniques for conserving linear momentum
- The relationship between scalars and vectors
Practice the implementation of these physics staples by working through the short self-assessment after each lesson. Don't be shy about asking our instructors for help; they're here to offer support.
1. Friction: Definition and Types
You experience friction all the time, and you should be glad you do! Friction helps keep stationary objects in place as well as slow moving objects down as they slide across a surface. This lesson identifies what friction is and explains the two ways we find this force on earth.
2. Distinguishing Between Inertia and Mass
Mass and inertia are both related to the amount of matter an object has, but they aren't exactly the same thing. In this video lesson, you'll see how mass affects an object's inertia, which in turn affects that object's motion.
3. Speed and Velocity: Concepts and Formulas
Did you know that an object's speed and velocity may not be the same? This lesson describes the concepts of speed and velocity relating to objects in motion. We'll look at a specific example to help learn how to calculate both speed and velocity.
4. Acceleration: Definition, Equation and Examples
Acceleration can be a tricky topic for many students who tend to get hung up on an object's speed. In this lesson, we will explore the common aspects of acceleration and why speed is not always important.
5. Velocity vs. Time: Determining Displacement of an Object
There is a lot of information you can determine by looking at a velocity vs. time graph. In this lesson, we will use a little geometry to calculate the displacement of the object represented by the graph.
6. Linear Momentum: Definition, Equation, and Examples
Any moving object has momentum, but how much momentum it has depends on its mass and velocity. In this lesson, you'll identify linear momentum, as well as see examples of how an object's momentum is affected by mass and velocity.
